    Default Feeding While Medicating

    What is the general consensus on feeding discus while you have medication in the tank? Most times sick fish don't eat so this point is often mute, but sometimes they do, or you are medicating very early on to keep the problem under control so they are still eating at this point.

    Do any of you feed while using API General Cure? What about bacterial infection medication?

    It depends on discus condition and medications administered I guess .
    If they have healthy appetite I always feed them during treatments. I always avoid feeding during " Chemo treatments " such as PP and salt baths and lower down amounts of food during heat treatments . Other than this I fed regulary if discus has it's normal appetite .

    If they'll eat feed them.Like most living things,it's always best to try and keep your strength/energy up and helps with healing.Most deworming meds (prazi)cause a decrease in appetite.So,some fish will and some fish will not eat when they feel ill.
