if your fish is continually doing these in this colour it might suggest something parasitic internally.

I've heard prazipro is good for this kind of thing, but be sure its definitely a continual thing before putting a treatment in place for the fish. Do you have a hospital tank by the way? I've got a separate tank for treating my fish, only a small one but its good for such things.

I'm not a forum expert here though, perhaps one of the others can help if they see your post later.

1.separate them in a hospital tank.

2.for dosing use 4 terramycine 500 mg tablet per 100 liter of water.

3.water change 30% daily.

4.continue this course for 5-7 days.

5.don't feed them.

do the treatment for at least 5 days.after that feed them soaked with metrogyl.if it eats and do black poop then you can understand that parasites are removed.

take 1 TSP of water and keep the tablet in it.you'll find a jelly type of thing is formed.then soak the food that you provide in it.it will soak and then feed it to your discus.
