One of my discus has this.
Can somebody help to identify the disease?
The second discus (I have two) does not have this white stuff, but both of them have kinda dark color, and I don't see them eating a lot...

I've bought them 10 days ago. The second one (not the one on the picture) had some spots very similar to Ich description, so I treated them with Formalin+Malachite green for the last week.....

Thanks for help.

P.S. I have also Clown Pleco and two Otos in the tank - they look just perfect...

Not an expert, but looks like one of the external protozoans that cause a slimy skin presentation. I'd continue with your current med, but you can double the dose with discus but other fish like otto cats might not take it.

ps I also would do 30-50% water changes every day or atleast every other
