my discus has lost its color and turned a dark, kinda black or purple color and always hides. he also sometimes leans to one side at about a 45 degree angle. what could be wrong with him and how can i treat it?

*** tested the water and its good

Hello, I've had the same problem at the beginning hobby. Disease called the swim bladder. The dark color is probably stress. Note: Don´t know your water parameters? Advise: Keep tpa's with good water quality regularly. Good quality food is essential. take care of your discus. Vitor Pires
