We ll it has been two weeks with not much change.I posted a short video showing his non-acceptance of food.He is the small one in the back and when food is introduced he just swims right past it,I have to admit he must be finding something to eat because he still looks great,not thin or sickly and he does still challenge his tormentor who is the red one towards the end of the video so until I see some change in appearance or health I will continue to entice him with his favorite[blood worms}and hope for the best.I have a second video feeding beef heart but have not yet downloaded it....

All your discus look very healthy first off.

Do you see a lot of bullying? Otherwise just give it more time
could be shyness, try feeding lights off?
i don't think any health issues though

How many water changes are you doing? How long you have your discus?

Thanks and I love them.
He is the smallest of the group about 4 1/2 inch compared to 5 1/2 for the rest so he does get bullied but no damage and he does stick up for himself when necessary.
I do 50%water change two sometimes three times a week.
They were all bought together from Chicago Discus about two months ago.
I will continue to watch him and hope time will bring him out.again thank you

Try and contact the seller, could be something wrong with fish from that batch and they may have had more problems and may be able to offer advice.

If you have a shy fish, I would add something he kind hide behind properly.

I had this happen to myself. I almost gave up on the little guy but he eventually started eating. They naturally won't starve themselves. Bloodworms they all go crazy for, try the live bloodworms(i believe they're actually blackworms) for a few days.

So he suddenly dropped appetite, bullying issue yes, but still should be eating
