Default medication for sick discus

Hello to all discus fans,

I have a blue discus (left one in picture) and here are her symptoms:

lying stationery almost 45 degrees
can swim straight
breathing rather quickly, gills moving fast too
saw long string of clear poop yesterday

I have since quarantined her in a small tank with filter...

Where can I find the right medication to treat her?

Hi bro,

This piece is stunted , can't grow much already.

Anyway, it is some internal flagellate. Some "deworming " medications will do. Example are metro, cripro, prazi, mq 4 & 5 etc. coupled with temp raised to 30deg.

Hello bro,
You judge the stunted by the size of its eyes? Tks

Can use the eye size ratio as a gauge . The other piece also under growth.

Eyes is one of the points to look put for.

At least the other is not as bad as the blue diamond.
