Discus Fish not growing.....

I have had my discus fish for 4 months, and they are in a 100 gallon tank. So far im not noticing their growth. I feed them frozen bloodworms, beefheart, dried bloodworms, and discus formula for growth. also, when i turn on my light they start to panic and bounce off the glass. is it because the light is to bright? i have a t-5 light bulb.

i moved your thread to the freshwater and tropical fish section. it seems you were confusing "discuss" as in discussion with "discus" as in the fish. if you feel there is a better location for this thread please feel free to let me know.


as for your fish. how big are they, how long has the tank been setup, how often do you feed and water change? anything else in the tank with them?
