    This is sounding positive for you. Keep up the good work. John is correct, keep a close eye out on water quality

    I would also suggest picking up another sponge filter if possible. Sponges are great for bio load, but not so good for solids...

    Discus is still looking bad and I’m about to reach my last day of treatment!! I’m considering a salt bath for 5 mins but what dosage do I need for 2 gals of water? Also I hooked up an old penguin 350 with floss on the intake. What should I use for filtration? Lava rock, activated carbon, sponge,what? Furan 2 is on standby but using it as a last resort.

    I DONT WANT MY LITTLE DUDE TO DIE!!

    I DONT HAVE A QT TANK TO SPARE AND THE REST OF THE FISH STILL HAVE WHITE STUFF ON THEIR FINS

    The filter is not cycled... Things are going to get worse.
    Treating sick discus while trying to get a filter cycled is a losing battle
    The more water changes you do to keep the Ammonia down, the less food for the filter to begin cycling.
    You can maybe try the bacteria in a bottle or similar to get it cycled on a fast pace but I have no experience with it or if it works.
    I'm afraid you waited too long to find the problem

    Would it help to use amquell with your water changes and amonium sorb in your filter, hopefully Pat will chime in and she will have some ideas
