 I  have  about  24  pieces  of  discus  about  1  and  half  inches  in  a  24X12X15  tank  for  about  4  weeks.  The  growth  has  been  retarded  and  they  have  lost  their  roundness.  I  plan  to  move  them  to  a  36X18X18  tank  this  weekend.  Till  daye  i  have  been  doing  200%  water  change.  Is  it  possible  that  once  i  move  them  to  a  bigger  tank  will  they  get  their  round  shape  back  gradually.

 Yes  ,  when  you  give  discus  a  bigger  water  area  ,  they  will  grow  well  .  
 Feeding  only  tetra  bits  or  dry  feed  sometimes  don't  give  that  good  result  ,  but  to  improve  the  shape  and  size  of  your  discus  you  need  to  feed  Animal  Heart  .
 
 Try  feeding  3  -  4  times  a  day  and  do  1  massive  WC  at  night  ,  you  will  find  good  results  within  2  months  .  there  may  be  some  discus  in  a  group  which  may  not  be  growing  well  which  you  need  to  grow  them  in  seperate  tank  .  
 
 Thanks

 Yup,  thought  about  that  initially  but  interested  to  know  his  location.  Sometimes  such  massive  WC  may  stress  discus  (only  sometimes  Very Happy  ).
 
 Only  healthy  discus  would  show  an  ideal  round  shape.

 Then  water  parameters  shouldn't  be  an  issue.  Just  transferring  them  to  bigger  tank  wouldn't  resolve  their  shape  problem.  btw  from  where  did  you  get  those  2  dozen  discus,  LFS  or  some  breeder?

 who  is  this  bredder  and  where  is  from?
 
 I  am  sure  that  before  he  sold  them  to  you  he  would  have  asked  you  the  tank  size  that  you  would  keep  them  in

 Hi,
 
 First  thing  give  back  12  of  them.  or  from  the  24  that  you  have  sort  the  good  looking  one  first  
 
 Then  your  sort  the  balance  keeping  in  mind  the  size  they  are  
 
 Then  the  one  that  have  been  sorted  you  can  start  taking  good  care  of  them  the  balance  can  once  again  be  returned  back  to  the  person  from  who  you  have  brought  them.
 
 regards,
 
 Clive

 1)  Love  them  .
 2)  Give  them  bigger  tank  to  grow  .
 3)  Feed  in  time  for  atleast  3-  4  times  in  aday  with  BHM  ,  tetra  bits  etc  .
 4)  Ensure  that  all  discus  gets  their  share  of  food  .
 5)  Don't  over  feed  your  discus  ,  feed  as  much  as  they  consumes  within  15  -  20  minutes  .
 6)  Do  regular  WC  with  aged  water  and  clean  the  side  &  bottom  glasses  and  the  sponge  filters  once  a  week.
 7)Avoid  medicating  them  at  their  growing  stage  .  
 Cool  Avoid  stressing  them  .
 9)  In  case  of  problem  ,  post  your  problem  in  IAH  without  wasting  much  time  to  enable  experience  people  to  guide  your  .
 
 Take  care
