I don't know how tasty those slime coats are but it must be pretty darn good. Once the otos started this behavior they wouldn't stop. While it probably wasn't aggressive (just hungry otos) it was pretty freaky to see not one, but two, and sometimes even three otos going after my pigeon. This particular pigeon liked hanging amongst the hygro angustifolio, the exact same place that the otos preferred. She would flick them off, but Discus, being the drama queens that they are, don't deal with stress well. I knew the otos were really stressing her out. So, I painstakingly netted out each and every oto (I had to catch nine of those suckers) out of the display.
Ostara, due to our experiences maybe we need to make a note to the Discus profile: steer clear of otos!!
(not really hijacking since the thread is about Discus and the OP asked about Discus tankmates)
