 HI.
 I  recently  shifted,  so  i  have  to  keep  my  discus  tank  on  the  floor  on  a  thermocol  sheet  till  i  can  have  the  permanent  stand  made.
 Due  to  the  total  commotion  and  vibrations,  i  guess  the  discus  are  really  scared  and  have  stopped  eating  and  confined  themselves  towards  one  side  of  the  tank..
 As  i  have  no  real  alternative  for  the  noise  and  position  of  the  tank,  is  there  anything  else  i  can  do  to  make  them  a  little  calm.  
 
 P.S  :  i  spoke  to  shiva  sir  and  he  told  me  to  attach  an  overhead  light  to  help  them,  which  i  have  done..Just  wanted  to  know  if  anyone  else  has  any  other  suggestions  which  i  could  use..Please  help,  im  really  tensed  !!   Sad   Sad

 try  to  cover  3.5  sides  of  the  tank  with  thermacol.  The  closed  tank  will  not  allow  them  to  have  look  at  fast  movements  around  the  tank.

 I  absolutely  agree  with  Adesh.Thermocol  should  do  the  trick.

 Also  add  thick  layers  of  thermocol  under  the  tank,  the  bigger   cusion  will  help  u  reduce  the  vibrations  from  the  floors.  Also  as  said  cover  the  sides  of  the  tank  with  thermocol  or  even  paper  would  do.  
 
 Do  40%  water  change  and  try  feeding  them  30  mins  after  that!

 @aadhesh  and  aquarius  :  thanks  for  the  suggestion..but  i  forgot  to  mention  that  both  sides  of  the  tank  are  already  covered  because  there  are  two  more  tanks  next  to  it.
 
 @apurva  :  i  guess  i  could  try  that  out..thanks  mate  !
