Worms and other parasites

  1. The best method for parasites/flagellates is heat treatment. It’s a pain in the butt to get meds here and they don’t always work too. I’d invest in a hospital tank and a good heater and temperature controller. Slowly crank up the temperature to 96-98f put the discus in there for 7 days and then lower it down to 88f. Few days after the treatment they should have better appetites and hopefully stop popping white. Make sure you go slowly and observe if any of the fish are visibly stressed, also other fish won’t be able to handle the heat just the discus. Just recently I got a new albino ring leopard I bought two months ago that just showed zero interest in food to finally start eating with this method.
