It's a shame too, and yeah. I have a spare heater, and there are no fishes left in that tank, all of them got wiped out in one day, I have absolutely NO idea what happened either

shadowstar123,
The best thing you could do for him is to give him LOTS of clean warm water.
Unfortunately it sounds like you've got some kind of disease (or parasite) running through that DT.
Hard to suggest a med given the info.....but clean water will help.
It looks like you do water changes fairly often (with nitrates at 5) So keep up with the water changes.

Keep us posted,
Dennis

Yeah, my discus already passed. When i stated all the fish died, i meant in the smaller tank my two discus were in, not my DT. as of now, one discus is the sole survivor out of all the fish, and i'm acclimating him now to my DT, since absolutely no fish have died ever in that tank. Dennis, is it possible that the temperature fluctuating from 86 down to 80 through the night the reason the fish died?

Sorry for the loss shawdowstar123,
And 86 degrees to 80 degrees over a few hours time might of stressed the little guy out. Really there's no way of telling for sure.

Is it possible that something contagious killed them? Because I'm acclimating the sole discus survivor to another tank, and I don't want my other fish to die also.
