 Yes  it  is  difficult  but  not  impossible,  though  I  am  not  married  but  I  have  to  convince  and  manage  my  would  be  all  the  time.  The  word  "manage"  is  of  great  importance  here.  ROFL  
 And  jerin,  just  put  the  top  filter  at  the  middle  back  of  your  tank  facing  the  turbulence  outlet  towards  the  back  wall.  That  way  it  will  be  much  less.  I  have  done  it  before  and  had  it  like  that  for  1.5  year  without  any  problem  for  my  discus  in  a  relatively  small  tank  than  yours  with  5  adult  discuses.
 Thanks

,  but  id  not  get  success  as  I  had  atleast  6  sponges  and  pads  along  with  ceramic  rings  and  cotton.  Due  to  that  it  was  overflowing.                  

 Reduce  the  number  of  pads,mate!

 Get  rid  of  the  dual  mouth  power  heads,  and  go  for  single  mouth  for  your  top  filter,  keep  the  nozzle(outlet)  of  the  filter  box  just  above  the  water  surface...it  will  reduce  turbulence  and  will  aerate  the  water.
 
 Equipped  with  ceramic  rings  and  good  filter  media  you  won't  need  any  sponge  filters.
 
 I  have  two  top  filters  running  for  years  now  ..without  any  sponge  filter  any  aeration  or  other  filters  ....and  all  the  discus  are  doing  just  fine.
 
 I  can  upload  pics  if  anyone  wants  to  have  a  look.

 @yogesh:  i  have  a  top  head  filter,  which  is  creating  turbulence  much  to  the  discomfort  fo  my  discus's,  so  thought  of  moving  to  sponge  filters......
 
 as  per  suggestions  from  members   turbulence  can  be  reduced  by  turning  the  pipe  towards  the  back  glass  of  the  tank,  so  thought  of  sticking  on  to  top  filter  if  it  works  out..........

 I  don't  agree  to  not  adding  sponge  filters  even  if  someone  is  doing  >100%  WC  everyday.  Sponge  filter  is  the  medium  to  build  a  colony  of  beneficial  bacteria  which  will  help  to  covert  nitrites  to  nitrate.  Even  though  WC  does  most  of  the  job,  but  till  the  time  we  have  WC  to  be  made  the  sponge  filter  does  the  job.
