 Hamza,
 
 The  discus  maybe  are  scared.  I  have  my  tank  in  the  living  room  where  there  is  constant  movement  and  the  discus  have  become  used  to  the  movement.  Keep  a  tubelight  or  a  40W  bulb  on  during  the  day  time.
 
 Hope  this  helps.
 
 Sriram

 Cardinals  would  do  better  than  neons.....  because  cardinals  could  tolerate  high  temperatures.........

 Direct  the  lights  from  the  top!
 I  would  ask  you  to  be  more  patient..discus  can  be  skittish  in  the  beginning  but  they  will  settle  down

 hmm  there  is  no  direct  light  from  the  top  as  such...
 Ya  of  course  i  have  to  be  patient  they  are  gorgeous  fish!
 Would  adding  a  couple  of  more  well  set  discus  help?Or  maybe  a  couple  of  pieces  of  drift  wood?
 Also  is  covering  the  tank  up  a  good  idea?Because  a  couple  of  people  told  me  not  to  baby  them  and  they  will  grow  up  to  be  more  skittish  if  raised  this  way?

 Scared  Discus,  skittish  discus,  hiding  all  the  time  discus  =  stressed  discus  as  per  Jack  Wattley.
 
 All  of  above  courtesy  reading  TFH  magazine  "  Ask  Jack"  column  over  the  past  many  years.  
 
 Many  a  times  he  claims  a  dirty  filter  and  bad  water  quality  is  the  cause.
 Cleaning  the  filter  and  changing  the  water  remedies  the  problem  in  many  cases.  If  this  is  not  a  cause,  you  have  already  added  a  sober  background,  it  could  be  a  underlying  infection.
 
 PS:  All  of  above  is  bookish  knowledge.
