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! :shock:

Maybe yours are just babies?

i wouldnt say they are babies. they are 3 inch each.

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
