Here is what the tank looks like today.

I must say the discus seem much happier. I'm currently feeding 3x a day and doing a daily 50 - 70 percent water change. I swear they've grown in the last 2 weeks.

Thanks

Some more close up shots







I may have stunted these fish during the 2 month period I kept them in a planted tank. The eye to body ratio seems a little off but then again that's what I thought when I grew out my first batch of Discus years back and with the exception one one all grew over the 6" mark. Time will tell.

Any discus pros please chime in do they look stunted? I know the little red turk is for sure but how do the others look?

Not having a dark substrate really makes a difference. the colours pop much more in a bare bottom tank. I'm going for a low tech planted tank with a thin layer of white sand once these guys grow a bit more.
