    Well I don't think these guys are going to make it, they been dropping like flies. I think I am down to half between culling and sudden death. The other 29 with the other fry are ok and they get the same regimen.

    Sorry to hear that Chuck. I haven’t been in a position to raise discus fry but I recall reading somewhere here, perhaps authored by Liz (I could be wrong) about “cleaning” fry of gill flukes using PP at a certain stage of their development. Anyone confirm?

    I said something close to that Danny. I said that it was a good idea to clean up the parents before you wanted to breed them. I wormed them, treated them for hex, and used PP for flukes. PP has fallen into disrepute since then. I think most folks use formalin.

    Possible Oodinium coming from the brineshrimp. When this happen usually one of two will die first, but so there are still 100 left
    not to worry but then every day there are some dieing till also the whole batch is gone. The treatment I use is 37% formalin as soon as I see one dieing, this will stop it immediately.

    I am down to 13 fry and their is a few more that need culled unless I cull the all 13. I think they are stunned and suppressed their growth from being sick and dying. They stopped dying after a 7 day prazipro bath but these are less than half of the size of the other batch from the Panda/eruption and these where wiggles first.

    Chuck I'm going to go out on a limb here looking at the fry I think you should cull them. I see alot of signs that. Tell me they have been compromised. I also think that it's not flukes. My guess is it's bacterial in nature. Some of the symptoms can be similar to flukes.

    Discus fry are pretty susceptible to bacterial levels in the water at a young age... Kind of like adult discus don'tdo well with high bacterial loads but much worse.
