    :)I have a 65 freshwater tank , it has a bunch of tetras and catfish , 7 discus. I have this problem that the discus are always hiding .once I turn the light on they all scatter . At present I am using florencent lighting .hope to switch to leds next year . Can anyone help me with the hiding . They truly are beautiful fish but I really don't see a lot of them . any help would be appreciated.

    This is normal
    Make sure they have plenty of hiding spots and live plants are ideal
    They should get used to it in a few weeks most likely
