Yeah i dont have a QT tank, there going to have to tough this one out. I see how QT tanks are so helpfull now though im moving in month so ive been trying to save money or i would probably have a QT tank and canisterfilter already, but im trying to hold off on things to move and save some bucks for the new place -_-
Keep an eye out for a used tank. A 10gal tank is usually pretty cheap and easy to set up. Bare bones- just a filter and heater are all that are really needed. A hood with a standard light fixture is nice but not absolutely necessary. I have some old plastic plants and caves that I throw in mine to help reduce fish stress, and I usually leave the bottom bare. Everything is easily sterilized with hot water and a bit of bleach. I managed to get my current 29gal QT tank off of Craigslist for just $20!
24 hours later some of the spots look like they have dissapeared as well as some look like they are falling off(they arent stuck on the fish look like a small string is holding them on) The discus isnt hiding anymore either and is using all its fins when it swims. There is no "jittery" fin movement now either looks a lot more calm and fluid movement. My tank temps are up to 86 now.
Im trying to feed them more flakes, they show intrest in that im feeding them but they dont seem to want to eat them will they eventualy take to eating them as they get hungry or will they starve if i dont feed them blood worms every other day?
You want to feed them a varied diet. If they're eating flakes some now that's a good sign. Try other frozen foods instead of just bloodworms; mysis shrimp are excellent, and also try spirulina-enriched brine shrimp. There's also some frozen foods especially for Discus.
Just an update, the spots are gone, the fish isnt hiding anymore or acting strage so looks like everything i did(with everyones help/advice) worked. thanks everyone ive got them eating flakes and dried bloodworms now also that have 60% crude protein and i feed frozen bloodworms and mysus shrimp every other day.
