First tank photos

New Discus, in the tank for a week. Thought I would try some photos. One lesson, clean the glass and don't photograph after feeding.

These are 4" Red Turquoise from Discus Hans. I live about an hour from his warehouse and he was kind enough to let me come and hand pick them. They are in a 90gal tank that I have had set up for four months with 10 Rummey Nose, 10 Corys and two Bristlenose.
The Discus love the plants as salad!

Cool.
But the specimens are looking quite stressed out. Maybe the light or something else..
Keep doing the water changes.

They don't seem stressed. They spend most of their time cruising the tank picking at plants and the wood. They all hide in one spot in the back if startled but no darting around. If I am in the room they want to eat and then their bars are really noticeable. They are all hand fed so maybe they are just ramping up to eat. Just did a water change! but I will keep a close eye, you can be sure.

They are probably just dark/ showing their bars because of the dark substrate.
