hi guys 

i have a beautiful pair of  red map discus. my male was breeding fine female was great.

wake up yesterday morning to see my male swimming with no balance. he now is laying on the bottom of the tank (not dead flat up a little ) sometimes he moves and is up right.

i have increased the temp to 32-33 held of food as he's not able to eat at that angle.

i have dosed the tank with epsom salts for swim bladder and also have on hand metro tablets 400 mg.

i realy dont want to lose him he is a very good breeder and a top looking fish can anyone help.

thanks for any advice

he couldn't eat so i force feed him every day with a pipet . that's what saved him . i gave him the food  and time he needed to repair + some metro bath's to be sure.

he's eating and swimming fine
