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.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
