Choose a suitable area

Good placing of aquarium is important for aesthetic and operation purpose. Avoid positioning the aquarium where direct sunlight falls on it for any length of time. Reason: the tank will be cloaked with unsightly algae. Placed it in an area free of sunlight and use lighting to control any unwanted or unnecessary plant / algae growth

If your discus is always hiding, staying in a corner, easily frighten and not going for food when feeding, most likely they are not happy with its surroundings

You need to find out the reasons and help them:

  1. Positioning of aquarium. Vibrations caused by people opening and closing doors, walking up and down the stairs make the fish jumpy and slow to settle down. Put the fish tank in a light traffic area
  2. Fish does not like shadows. It will frighten them. Setup an overhead lighting on the aquarium. The fish will feel better. You can see them better but they cannot see you. All aquarium shops have lighting on their show tanks. The fish are not scared with all the people looking at them
