What are those neon rasboras?

Discusses do need higher temps than some other fishes. Maybe neon rasboras can stand it?

I was seriously thinking about introducing discusses, but the temp issue sort of stopped that. I am afraid the others won't like it at all. Discusses should probably be kept alone.

Maybe someone else is better informed, I would really love to read other people's opinion.

Cardinals can usually stand higher temperatures than neons, and look similar so you may want to try them instead. The rasboras are harlequins? If so I think they would probably be alright as i have heard of them being kept with discus before sucessfully.

Discus are a bit more challenging than some other fish to kp, and do require a large tank size and some other special requirements. if howver you are well equipped for them, I see no reason not to go for it.

Oh, I see, sorry, I have misunderstood.

The temperature is not the only requirement, though. But I also think you should try it. Discusses are worth all the effort. Only you should prepare for it and weigh pros and contras.

Discusses are madly expensive here. How much is it at your place?

You should get a school... And try to keep them happy and healthy! :D
