No. 29C is 84F, way too high a temperature for neons that really shouldnever be above 25C/77F max. I would also suggest 82F as better for discus [Jack Wattley says this, and he knows more about discus that any of us].

With discus, a better fish is the cardinal tetra. It is a bit larger so less likely to be eaten (discus may eat small fish), but it does fine in warmer discus-type temperatures. And the water parameters match too.
