One suggestion to add since it hasn't yet been raised--you need a group of discus not one solitary fish. It will be stressed out unless it is in a perfect environment, and being programmed for company a few more discus will keep it more stress-free and that means healthier.

Maintaining a lone discus for breeding purposes is a very different thing that maintaining healthy discus in an aquarium for display. And I am confident that Mr. Whattley, whose columns I regularly read even though I do not keep discus, would agree with me.
