| || | Discus are quite prone to intestinal flagellates. Yes, they often group together but as they mature, they begin to choose their own partner and pair up. There is a list of medicines posted in Freshwater Emergencies and Diseases. Might want to look up Levamisole hydrochloride.

If you really want to, monitor the angelfish closely. The temperature for discus should not fall below 28 degrees Celsius. Neons are problematic here as I found them quite intolerant of the warm temperatures. Cardinals or rummy-nose tetras are your best bets.
I would still like to put some discusses in a 40 gal tank together with one old veteran angel (who used to be mean to his own kind introduced before), 5 albino cories and some 10 neons... Maybe it's not a good idea? |
