    Default White stuff on the head

    One of my discus has these white stuff coming out if its head. I do regular water changes and medicate with Melafix, aquarium salt and occasionally with Seachem Paraguard,
    I also add Seachem equilibrium after each water change since I use RO water. The water is crystal clear.

    How much water do you change and how often. Crystal clear water can have a lot of nasties in it. Not sure if it's an injury or the beginning of head in the head, Try to fill out the questionnaire. http://forum.simplydiscus.com/showth...lease-complete

    I'm afraid it is hole in the head. They say the treatment is metro but IME this never heals.

    It usually leaves a scar. There are two species of Hex. One is able to live outside the gut, hence HITH or lateral line disease. But both look almost alike under the microscope.

    I agree with Liz, the way is to control the outbreak by way of more waterchanges and oxygen.
