Sick discus – ich (Ichthyophthirius multifilis)

Written by allan on . Posted in Diseases, Health and Treatments

I bought two discus a red melon and a white scorpion. The red melon had some kind of ich or parasite. The white scorpion had the same but also is wasting away. I’ve had them for two weeks and they still won’t eat. I treated for external parasites, but they still won’t eat. Help!!

Reply:
The fish will feel stress after transferring from one place to another place. They must be carefully handled.

If you are sure is ich: Raise the temperature to 31 degree C.
Apply Methylene Blue solution with salt.

If it is not eating problem, apply two tablespoon full of Epsom salt.
Water changed and repeat the treatment for second day.
On the third day she should be eating.
