Hello,

I stuck my discus fish into there new tank a couple of days ago. And now
they don't really come to the front of the tank anymore. They always
hide in the plants. The only time they come to the front is when I am
feeding them. They do not seem to be stressed or sick.
So do ya'll think they might still be getting used to the tank?

Definitly. It is going to take your fish a week or so to be comfortable. I had the same issue when I moved mine from a 75gal to their current home in the 125. They spend most of their time behind some plants but do come out during the evening. Sudden moves around the tank cause them to scurry back to their hiding spot. Give them some time, they'll come out eventually.

youre domestic or locally bred discus are bred in bare bottom tanks , they also have no clue what a planted tank is never mind gravel. If they were in a barebottom before ide just keep a close eye on them.
