    Bloating is bacteria. In that case raising the temperature will speed up the bacteria. For bacteria the temperature needs to be lowered and treatment should be with antibiotics. Raising the temperature is great for protozoan infections such as hexamita (white poop) and ich. Assuming none of the other discus are showing symptoms I would recommend keeping conditions stable, daily water changes, 86F, multiple feedings of high protein food and no medications. Let them have some time to settle into their new home. The other thing to be careful about is using media from a different discus tank to seed the new tank. Especially if the old discus are from a different source than the new discus there is a risk of introducing bugs that the new discus don't have immunity to. This is especially true during the first week when the new discus are already a bit stressed from the move and their immune systems are lowered they are going to be more susceptible to getting sick. I prefer a completely sterile tank for new arrivals.

    Thanks for the advice but unfortunately the seeding is already done =(. The rest of the fish are doing awesomem they are swimming vigorously and eating well. Not eating as much as id like them to but eating which is good a very good sign.

    Ok, so I've noticed a little bit of darting and rubbing against the heater. I'm going to be using prazipro for the next 5 days just for safe measures.

    Stopping the prazi pro. The darting was from the 100% water changes from straight tap water. The fry are far to sensetive to the micro bubbles. I'll have to use a new method.

    Im think of moving them on up to the 33g so i wont need to do the larger wc's or aging the water.

    Any ideas?

    Why not all 3? Move them up to 33g, age the water and do large water charges.
