Thanks I dont know what happened I did my usual water change added ferts then one started acting strange like he was in a daze or something, I did another 50% wc they looked fine. Spent the night over my gf's house came back the next morning and all 3 were dead, the rest of my discus were fine I tested my water and everything came out fine. I have 8 discus I transferred 4 discus from my other 55g.

Discus are magnificent fish. I've always wanted to make a discus tank myself, but right now it is just too expensive and too high maintenance for me. One day... One day...
