Well I have had a few discus that were eating like little pigs for the past few weeks and not growing much so I have decided to medicate the tank and This what i found today..
Have you ever seen such misery on the face of a fish before? Those first two pics could break your heart.
Well, hopefully the medication will cure them and they'll soon be eating comfortably (the fish, not the worms). Looks like you pulled out the big guns, too, three super potent meds. Do you know what kind of worms those are?
Thanks Morainy for the kind words. But I'm not that amazing . I got lucky and I caught the problem early. Discus are a lot hardier than we give them credit for . Just need to now where the fish come from and how they are raised.so where do the tape worms come from? feeding raw meat? ie beef heart?
Bonsai Dave, your fish look great! It's really heartening to know that fish can not only survive an infection like that, but thrive, with proper treatment. You're amazing!
