    It's just a discus pimple. Discus often get them when the water quallity is on the border line of their tolerance .
    Just up the WCs and it will go away by it self .

    Thank god for that! Really didn't want to be treating for whitespot after the nightmare ive had with gill flukes. Will up water changes to every day instead of every 2 days.

    Yes , don't worry too much .Just change more water or go easier on feeding.
    White spot disease or Ichtyo is pretty rare on discus because of the high temps we keep them . Also very easy to eradicate because of discus salt and heat tolerance .

    Ichtio are salt intolerant protozoas and discus can bear and take heavy concentrations of salt along with high heat for prolonged time . By salt i mean regular table / Kitchen salt as a cure for some discus diseases .
