    Hiya. I started with one discus, school of cardinals and shrimp in a heavily planted 55 Gallon. I added four more discus (all discus are juveneiles). Now the original is agressive and always dark. Lately dark in the corner. Is this something to be waited out or should I return the 4 new ones?


    Thanks

    Kinda sounds like the original discus has some territorial issues. I could be wrong. Could try rearranging the decor. He might also just need some time to adjust to the newcomers.

    Thanks so much for the quick response. I'll keep monitoring him but it's a heavily planted tank and to rearrange will be difficult. I'll think about it though
