IDK if it's just ym imagination but it seems like my discus are pooping a lot after a water change. If they really are is it a sign something is wrong?

Mine did this a lot. Was frustrating, especially if you were overly obsessive about the tank bottom being spotless. Unless the poop looks off or there are other signs with the fish I wouldn't assume its anything bad.

i would assume they knew the "toilet" have been cleared up spotless.

So time to use it again, just like humans do. :D

your water changes are scaring the sh_t out of them...... lol. It's completely normal, although frustrating as Matt has said.

I think it's a good sign. Unless your adding laxative LOL.

Just good old RO water mixed with some waste water and aged to perfection lol.

They always **** after a WC. It's normal. Other fish are worse. My Pearl Gourami tank looks like I never even vacuumed the bottom before their WC.

Yep, normal, I think it may have something to do with the pecking order. I always try to vacuum it as they ****, but their will always be a few wise guys that get the last ****.
