Free, 3 juvenile red turq discus, Wellington city

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have 7 young discus (about 6 months old). I have had the discus for about 3 months, daily wc’s 50% and feeding 6x per day. I have also treated for worms/flukes a couple of times. 4 of the discus are looking great, but 3 are still the same size as when I purchased them (about 2.5 inches), and have recently stopped eating. I don’t have a quarantine tank to put them in to treat them separately and I don’t want to euthanise them if they have a chance of surviving. This is my first time looking after discus and I don’t have the knowledge to treat them properly, and wanted to ask if there was anyone who would want to adopt the 3 smaller discus if they were able to give them a better chance at surviving. Completely understand if this post doesn’t get any interest, just thought I would give it a try rather than just watching them get worse :( thanks, Jo

Hi jo,

I could house them if your still looking to, I'm mstn based but will be over the hill Tuesday and could pick up then if that works well? 

Message me on 0277886698 if you want to.

Cheers Jake.

Hi Jake, sorry for the late reply, was waiting to be approved as a user on this site. Thanks so much for the offer, unfortunately they passed this weekend - I started treating them with flubendozole but I didn't start soon enough, and they were so small they just weren't strong enough to survive 😪 the remaining 4 are doing really well, but I am gutted I didn't pick it up sooner as I think they would have been fine if I had. All the best, Jo

No worries, nothing to be sorry for - I should have picked it up sooner. Rest are looking well, they have had two treatments now and aside from a little flashing are looking fine and still eating heartily. Its my first time owning Discus, I didn't realise how sensitive the smaller ones were to flukes 😓 again thanks for your offer of help, fingers crossed it goes a better from now on.
