 Smaller  discus  get  accustomed  to  their  environment  much  faster  than  their  larger  counterparts.
 As  a  matter  of  fact,when  I  started  with  discus,adjusting  a  single  adult  specimen  to  a  group  and  getting  it  started  to  eat  was  a  real  headache.On  the  other  hand,adjusting  juveniles  to  a  new  tank  was  smooth  provided  it  was  from  a  good  source.
 There  are  few  notable  observations  in  this  regard>>>
 >Firstly  smaller  discus  get  a  bit  nervous  if  they  are  housed  in  a  very  big  tank.
 >Secondly  the  height  of  the  tank  placement  should  be  at  least  at  the  hip  level  of  the  observer.Also  note  that  too  much  sudden  movement  near  a  tank  can  scare  them  a  lot  though  normal  human  traffic  is  acceptable.
 >Thirdly  if  they  are  still  nervous,  reduction  of  water  level  and  a  little  bit  of  non  iodised  salt  helps.
 >Fourthly  improper  water  parameters  can  cause  nervousness.Check  the  TDS  of  the  water  (anything  above  250  can  stress  them)
 >Do  not  provide  too  much  hiding  places  in  the  tank.
 >Reduce  the  tank  lighting  to  a  minimum.
 >Sometimes  adding  a  few  compatible  dither  fishes  might  help.
 Try  to  follow  these  guidelines  and  we  believe  your  fishes  will  fare  better  on  the  social  front.  Thumb Up

 Hi,  
 
 
 Currently  i  have  7  Blue  diamond  -1  inches  approx  
                                  1  Red  map  -  2.5  inches  
                                  1  Red  map  -  2.5  inches  
 
 Tank  size  36  x  12  x  18  inches  (  l  x  b  x  h)  -  BB  tank
 
 WC-  40  TO  60  %  5  times  a  week  
 
          water  is  aereated  for  24  hrs  as  well  as  sometimes  i  also  use  hypo  in  emergency  
 
 Water   temp  -  28  degree  celsius  
 
 Filtration  -  1  Sponge  filter
   
 Feeding  -  Goat  heart  mixture  (cleaned  thoroughly  and  grinded  properly  anf  freezed)  
                     twice  a  day  
 
 Additionally  sometimes  i  put  Sea  salt  as  a  conditioner  -  2  tblspoon  
 
    Most  of  them  rome  in  the  tank  quiet  well  or  just  be  in  the  corner  of  the  tank  resting  or  standing  still   but  the  problem  arises  only  wen  some  one  gets  closer  to  the  tank.
 
    does  it  happens  as  it  is  cold  these  days  or  anything  else.
 
 Regards,
