I wouldn't if I were you. There is too many risks involved with that. Feeder fish can carry diseases that the discus may not be immuned against.

Best of luck, mate.:)

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.

a bit of a side note. discus can get constipated (i know kind of funny to watch your fish' bowels) if they get alot of protein so it's a good idea to feed them some peas or a food rich in spirulina, i use hikari cichlid excel for that. if you get any other fish to go with them be sure to quarantine them for a bit first. There was someone that lives around here that got some discus from a pet store, put them in with his other discus and only like 1 of the new ones survived out of all the discus in the tank. It was bad, discus just catch desease easily so you have to be careful. All the best. :D
