That isn't "playing" but it is typical cichlid behavoir. Discus can be just as nasty as any other cichlid, especially if they aren't housed properly. The minimum number of Discus to be kept in a shoal is six, which is what nearly every Discus keeper will recommend. I started with three, added two more, and it wasn't until I had eight that all the infighting and aggression was spread out amongst the shoal, giving the tank balance. All it takes now is to remove one (my Red Turk had to go to QT for an eye injury) and that really upset the apple cart. They are working it out but Discus are cichilds, through and through.
You only have four Discus in your tank so inevitably one of those fish is going to be singled out as the whipping boy. It looks like your Blue Diamond is the current whipping boy.
