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

How long have you been keeping the discus with the angel?Both of them are captive breed?

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.

Warning:
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.
