Well had a real tough time of it past 3 weeks. Very depressing lost 5 of my babies. Did some crying lost some sleep and now have to move on and just learn from this experience. I had been conversing with Rick who has been very helpful to try to get me through this. Symptoms of fish just wasn't clear enough and couldn't pinpoint what was exactly wrong. (Makes me want to get a microscope)
Used kanaplex for full course then lost 2, and then moved on to general cure (Metro and prazi) . Had to go away for weekend which was really bad timing and leave them with the last dose of general cure; feeling they would be dead when I returned. Came home to 3 dead and 1 fish barely alive. I immediately did a water change. I thought ok I have nothing to lose and decided to treat with Clout. I used the shotgun method(Dr Erik Johnson) Treating on day 1,2,3 5 and 7 and to my surprise fish is looking better. Discus have not eaten for over 2 weeks no matter what I tried. I hatched some baby brine shrimp and put some in the tank, and I'm so happy he started eating them. I'm really hoping he will continue to improve. I must say how attached I have gotten to these little guys. Broke my heart to see the others die.
Note: I did see a lot of white stringy poo later on and scratching. Thinking they had hexamita(malawi bloat), and possibly flukes but not sure.
