Hi,
got 2 discus fish only a day ago and have already noticed one fin is clamped, they seem to just hide under filter all the time, would raising the temperature help or perhaps medication any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated, have tested water all is well, temperature 80.

Raising the temperature a little, to around 82-84'F might help.

Discus can take a while to settle in, sometimes several weeks, especially in smaller numbers - so it's not unusual that they are hiding away initially.
