I have a sick Discus. I call this one #3, usually quite active, eats everything that resembles food. This morning he/she is pointing slightly down and swimming down trying to keep from floating up. Air blatter problem?
temp = 83.7
A = 0
ph = 6.0
no2 = 0
no3 = 10
kh = 1
gh = 7

#3 has been developing a big belly over the last 3 weeks. Other than that he/she appeared completely healthy until this morning.

All the other fish in the tank seem okay.

I feed a variety of foods, Cichlid flake, discus pellet, frozen foods.

Today I rechecked some things.

NO2 - 0.05

I did a 15 gallon water change yesterday and again today. This is in a 40 gallon tank.

Looks like he/she is going to all right. Maybe he had that "I don't believe I eat the whole thing!" feeling. A day of fasting and some quiet time in the hospital. And the 2 consecutive 30% water changes in the Discus tank and all the inhabitants look just fine.

Yea!!
