 You  seem  to  be  new  to  discus.   Just  have  them  for  a  while.   Later  you  can  get  some  young  discus  from  a  reputed  breeder.
 Its  a  rule  of  the  thumb  to  have  4-6  of  them  in  a  bare  bottom  3'  tanks  with  a  sponge  filter  with  daily  water  changes.   You  should  be  doing  the  same  on  the  long  run.

Tapan  most  of  your  discus  look  to  be  in  poor  shape  and  stunted..a  couple  of  blue  diamonds  seem  to  be  showing  internal  problems  as  well
 u  should  start  over  this  tank  by  getting  some  discus  from  a  good  breeder                

 
 Hi,
 
 Can  you  please  tell  me  what  signs  you  have  seen  which  shows  the  problem  in  the  discus  ?  When  they  came  to  me  they  were  colourless  and  after  they  have  increased  and  have  gained  colour.  I  have  also  added  a  small  batch  of  new  discus  of  about  11  discus..i.e:  Yellow  marble  and  Pegion  Blood  which  are  small  in  size  but  are  ganing  colour  also.
 
 Please  let  me  know.  In  Chandigarh  there's  only  1  LFS  who  keeps  discus  and  the  price  is  way  too  high.  I  am  getting  discus  at  1/4th  price  of  what  he  gives  and  his  is  also  in  same  conditions.  So  i  think  its  not  wise  for  me  to  get  discus  fish  at  very  high  cost  when  I  am  able  to  get  same  at  1/4th  price.  I  am  getting  from  same  person  from  where  the  local  LFS  gets.
 
 Thanks.

 Tank  is  Looking  Good  Buddy....But  as  suggested  that  Internal  Power  Filter  has  to  go....replace  with  a  HOB  or  External  Canister.
 
 IMO  the  arrangement  of  the  stones  can  be  improved,  and  some  Driftwood  would  increase  the  appeal  of  the  tank.
 
 But  all  in  all  Great  Looking  Setup   Thumb Up

 Hi,
 
 The  quality  of  fishes  is  fine  only  they  are  small  in  size  i  guess  thats  why  they  are  inexpensive,  so  until  its  good  i'll  buy  for  cheap  lol!  Â Thumb Up   Also  i  must  say  that  inexpensive  does'nt  means  thats  its  going  to  be  bad  or  something.  It  can  be  good  too.  Smile
 
 Thanks.

 Tapan,
 
 In  case  you  want  to  understand  why  Hamza  said  that  your  discus  were  stunted,  please  read  this  excellent  article  by  none  other  than  our  own  'Beta'  in  SimplyDiscus
 
 http://www.forum.simplydiscus.com/showthread.php?t=33300
 
 Having  said  that,  the  most  important  thing  is  that  you  should  love  the  fish  you  keep  which  you  are,  so  take  utmost  care  of  your  'baby'  and  enjoy  the  joys  of  fish  keeping.
 
 Regards
 Bala

 I  think  your  tank  looks  great  as  it  and  as  long  as  it  is  alright  for  the  fish   if  you  like  it  that  is  all  that  matters.  I  think  too  much  emphasis  is  laid  on  copying  a  standard  look  for  our  tanks,  eg  discus  should  be  in  a  bare  bottomed  tank,  malawis  should  only  have  a  rocky  setup  etc  that  half  the  joy  of  keeping  fish  is  lost.  Everyone  has  there  own  personal  taste  and  should  have  the  tanks  decorated  as  they  find  pleasing  keeping  in  mind  the  requirements  of  the  fish  as  they  are  the  ones  going  to  be  looking  at  the  tank  every  day
