I recently got a discus from a friend of mine and since getting it is constantly standing on its head. My ph is 7.2, there is no ammonia present nitrates are minimal and there are only minimal nitrates present. I don’t want the fish to die. Is there anything I can do to try to resolve this? My aunty had an angel fish that did this for the first 2 weeks she had it then it was fine.
This might be internal problem.
Could be the bladder not functioning well.
It will be like this for some time or permanently.
We as a breeder, we usually cull it out.
