Discuss not eating

Postby Parvinder1978 » Fri Jan 30, 2015 10:57 am

I have a 215 litre Aqua One tank and have just added 6 Discuss fish, they don't seem to want to eat I've tried different types off food but still not eating.
Any suggestions?

When you say "just added", how recently do you mean?

Discus can take a while to settle in and it might be a few days before they will take food, sometimes it can be weeks before they become confident and eat consistently. Sometimes it's better to let them settle in for a little while rather than constantly offering different foods - a few days without food won't harm a healthy fish.

Of course it's important that the water quality is good and the temperature correct, as both of these will affect a fish's appetite.

Are there already other fish in the tank?

Remember there's lots of info at The Tropical Tank main site!

Hello Sean,

Thanks for your reply.

I added the Discuss fisg around 2 weeks ago

Yes there are other fish in the tank.

I have tested the water and the quality is good and temperature is also correct.

I will not feed them for a few days and see if that works.
