    Post Discus floating upside down!

    One of my Discus has been floating upside down near the surface! It has been swimming with it's belly up since this morning! Yesterday night it was all fine but I don't know what happened to it overnight. What should I do? Please Help!

    Sounds like a swim bladder issue.Sometimes the ducts get blocked.I've had some success with epsom salts.I've even had them gulpe down food and air along with it.

    It seems to be fine now but it's lying flat on the ground now! Don't know what's wrong!

    It doesn’t sound good. Did you try the Epsom Salt?
    How are the others doing?
