Discus fish

i have 3 discus fish in my 20 gallon tank and lately 2 of my discus just stay in one place they dont move. they look in excellent condition i checked the water all the results are perfect. is there a reason on why they just floating in one place or they do that randomly.

20 gal is drastically small for discuss!

Maybe yours are just babies?

I'd say they aren't in excellent condition if that is how they are acting. My guess is they are being picked on by your black ghost knife fish- which will also quickly outgrow your 20g.

What is the water temperature? Maybe your discusses are cold? I have read they need 28 degrees C
