As suspected, you don't need the water changes, and don't feed beefheart.
It's an attempt to to do biotopes. Discus grow to adulthood in the wild.
Of course they don't get as big, and some of the extremely inbred varieties don't take it too well... but not impossible and all-in-all, probably healthier for the fish. (To eat what they would eat in the wild. Think a wild discus would ever find a drowned cow in the amazon basin? And then tear it's heart out?)
Actually that would be interesting to see... lol. Gave me a funny visual image.
I regularly toss a cow into my tank. My Discus for nuts for it!
I agree, it's a very funny visual. Me, lifting that cow into the tank...
