 Add  two  more  discus  to  make  it  6  in  tank  .
 Timely  feeding
 Feed  as  much  they  consume  within  20  mintues  ,  no  over  feeding  .  
 Regular  WC  .  
 No  live  feed  .
 No  unnecessary  medication  .Any  problem  start  with  bigger  WC  and  Salt  .
 Love  them  .
 If  you  find  any  problem  with  your  fish  ,  post  it  on  IAH  to  guide  you  .
 
 Thanks

 So  sir  can  u  guide  me  for  this  to  get  out  there  stress  as  i  want  this  beautiful  fish  to  moe  freely..  i  do  WC  daily...  with  salt  in  it..  is  it  ok?

 ^^Why  are  you  adding  salt  at  every  WC?
 
 To  make  them  more  comfortable  try  using  dimmer  lights  and  also  cover  3  sides  of  the  tanks.

 hey  nanu  
 
 sorry  ..........but  covering  3  sides  would  be  a  bad  idea  ,  i  am  still  a  new  comer  in  this  ,  but  i  personally  feel  covering  3  sides  would  be  a  bad  idea  let  them(discus)  set  in  this  environment  by  themselves  ,  they  should  get  habituated  to  this  environment  and  by  covering  3  sides  i  dont  think  they  will  get  Habituated  ,,,,,,this  is  my  view  ,,,please  conform  it  from  the  experts  also

 Discus  are  sensitive  to  change  in  surroundings  ,  so  when  you  put  on  the  lights  they  feel  insecure  and  they  responds  accordingly  and  they  try  to  hide  in  a  corner  .  same  sometimes  happens  when  you  change  the  filters  ,  or  overhead  lightings  or  any  set  up  in  the  tank  .

So  sir  can  u  guide  me  for  this  to  get  out  there  stress  as  i  want  this  beautiful  fish  to  moe  freely..                  

 
 Avoid  putting  very  bright  overhead  lights  ,  light  should  not  be  very  bright   nor  very  dim.  Keep  the  lights  on  for  max  time  .  starve  the  fish  for  one  day  so  that  they  move  out  freely   in  search  of  food   .

i  do  WC  daily...  with  salt  in  it..  is  it  ok?                

 
 doing  WC  daily  is  good  ,  If  your  discus  have  any  external  problems  then  only  you  need  to  add  salt  .  No  need  to  add  salt  after  every  WC  .
