IMHO discus don't compete well for food and prefer to take their time while Angel fish greedily go after their food. Angel fish can also be a bit aggresive. But I have seen them with Discus.

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.

Thanks for the help, the Angels I have a only small ATM, and the Discus that i can get are rather small too. I got told that the Angels get aggresive later in life. Hopefuly by then I will have another tank set up for either just the Discus or the Angels.
Can I possibly but in different food for each fish, maybe something that the Angels dont like but the Discus do?

They are both cichlids and require similar diets to remain healthy. Can't think of anything discus would eat that Angel fish wouldn't go for as well. But maybe they would all get along. You could try . I would be sure and have someplace to move fish to if it became necessary.
