I have had Wendtii's of all different colors in my tank since June. They have been great, holding color and growing strong. I recently bough 4 Discus and have since been doing 50% WCs twice weekly and im about to up it to 4 days a week!

From what i have read in my searches here, changes in parameter (ala more water changes) cause cause crypts to melt. I have 6 wendtii's that are all melting at once right now.

My question is: Will this continue while i own discus and do 4-50% WC's a week?

I dose E.I and have about 2.3 wpg in a 180gal. pressurized CO2 tank. No other plants are affected.

Any drastic changes can cause crypts to melt. They will get used to the constant water changes and grow back.
Why are you doing such drastic water changes?
Sorry i misread your post. Most people who own discus do WC daily. Being that i have a 180 i REALYY dont want to do that so im gonna do 50% 4 times every other day.

It's usually only juvenile discus where people maintain that water change regimen; once adults, 50% weekly is usually sufficient.

I suspect that your Crypts will grow back and get used to your water change regimen.
