    As always great looking discus!! For me to stop that bossy stuff. I feed the bio-pigment loose. Soak in water for a bit then spill some in every 5min. It floats all over and no one fish can control it.

    I notice that the SS looks a little dark, standoffish and didn't eat. The others look great to me.

    Hey Al found this video on Utube. Maybe this is the problem of your storages on FDBWs. Check it out: https://youtu.be/L_ehAnE66zI

    I seriously doubt that if there even is a problem, it's not due to Al's black worms. Sometimes there is a timid fish that is out competed by the others. Due to that, it will become stressed and the parasites that fish come in with, but it's immune system keeps in check are no longer kept in check. There are some parasites that we call the gift that keeps on giving. I'm currently treating a pair for hex. I have not added any outside fish to my tanks for years, and my Discus tanks are maintained perfectly with a minimum of 30% WC daily. It's a huge pain but sometimes it just happens.

    Liz I spotted that too. Me I’m thinking as I always do it’s the angelfish!! And the bossy fish at the cube. Again why I feed the loose mostly. When I feed cubes I hold it and make sure everybody gets some. As seen in the video discus can be greedy!

    Hey Roland, Thanks. A bunch of people buy these FDBW in volume from authorized sellers when stocks allow and slap a label on and resell. The flag is the size bags they sell are small, generally 25-50 grams. Supplies of the Blackworms are just not high and prone to shortages. The Farm has 2 authorized distributors in North America... me and a seller in Canada.

    Hey guys theres nothing wrong with that fish, its a Penang Eruption, and thats its color. Also after awhile the cube floats away from the glass and breaks ups into loosen pieces. Every body eats!
