I'd say if the discus and angels were fine together before, then go ahead and put the angels back in. People say not to keep them together because angels are more aggressive. They may bully the discus or eat all of the food before the shy discus can get any. I would either get some dither fish like tetras or put the angels back in and watch to make sure the discus aren't being picked on. There are exeptions to every rule.

the problem was they did not let discus eat well.

would you think some neon will help?

should I have to do some thing else? ( like do not feed them or....)

regards

I prefer cardinals over neons. Neons just don't seem to like warmer temps the discus need.

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.

there are too many misconceptions about discus and angels.
if they were ok together and there was no fighting, everybody was getting enuogh to eat, and most importantly...they were all happy; then i would have left them.
just because someone read something that says thier bad tankmates means nothing.
it all depends on the fish and they always have different personalities.

10g: QT BGK
12g SW: 2 percs, 5 snails
30g: 3 guppys, 4 panda corys, 1 gourami. 3 black skirt tetras, 3 otos, GBR pair
55g: 4 discus, 4 spotted corys, 4 otos, 2F GBRs, 10 neon tetras
55g: 5 platys, bristlenose pair, 2 guppies, 11 black kuhlii loaches, 2 otos, 3 little angelfish

Are the angels back with your discus? Also, what have you tried feeding them? Listing tank size and water stats will also help.

thank you for your reply.


My tank size is about 58 gallons.

water quality is good. because other 7 of them is are eating well.

the ph is about 6.5 and temp is about 28 C (82.5 fa)

I feed them with Frozen blood worm. tetra bits tetra breeder. Some times live artemia. beef heart.
and some times beef heart combined with ( spinach or lettuce).

I have a normal diet for them.

they have a kind of stress or disease. and I think it is the stress becuase
they afraid of me.

and When the angels were in tank it was the same problem.
and there is no angel any more.

best regards

hi again

I am confused

after I bought some zebra the discus are a little better but as I said
this time the seller lied to me. and that beautiful fishes are my worst bought.

the problem is they are so frightened so they wont eat as much as I want

the other problem is I think some of them have a kind of disease.
because they have a fast movement at once. and they took their boodies with that kind of movement to the nearest plants.
they don't like to eat.
because they are blood checker pigeons they did not became black or dark and there is no wound .
but one of them became very thin and white there is no bright in the colour
any idea
