Can discus get on well with abgelfish?I have heard that angels have a parasite that affects discus,but i have seen so many tanks with both discus and angels.Is there a possibility that only wild caught discus are affected and captive breed arent?

Thanks in advance

They'll be fine as long as you make sure the discus are getting their fair share of food, angelfish are keeping their distance from the discus and proper tank maintenance. Discus are more vulnerable to diseases than angels so if you want them with angels, make sure to keep your tank water in tip-top conditions.

Angelfish are often eager to breed so don't be surprised if one day, you'll find them pairing up and bullying the discus to death.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
