OK so one of my discus today has stopped eating and he is shying away in a corner of the tank he is not being bullied and his colour is fine and he looks very healthy but he is just acting like this today, I checked the water parameters and all seems fine so I'm at a loss to what is up here

Have you checked its pooh? or are there any other fish in the tank that may be disturbing it?

Poo is fine no he is not being bothered at all and all the other discus are fine one of my filters was fairly packed so I rooted the just have the tank running on the big filter for now which is nice and clean and have done a 50% water change and I'm gna cut down on the amount of beefheart I am feeding hopefully that will do the trick coz he is a lovely stendker pidgeon blood on of my nicest fish

Its typical that it would happen to your nicest one!! :crazy:

If its only just started i would not worry unless he stays the same for a good few days, It has happend to my discus in the past and they just get over it after a day or 2.

If the poo is ok and no other signs of infection the only other reason I have come across when this happens is when a new discus is added and the least dominant fish hides away while the pecking order is reestablished.

Hope it sorts itself out!
