I have 2 discus in my 30x15x18 tank. When i bought them 2 months ago they were about 2.5" exactly same size. Now one of them is about 3" and the other is 3.5". Initially the now smaller one was dominant, it used to aggressively chase the other away from the food and then eat leisurely, once it finish eating the other one will come and gulp down food. So the second one started growing fast and about 2 weeks back the pecking order changed, now the second one softly peck the other but is not very aggressive both eat food together, both are eating well. I feed them BHM and Frozen blood worms. Is the uneven growth rate normal?
I have not de-wormed them, could it be that one has worms and that is why it is growing slow? Should i try to de-worming with Metrogel?

When you are posting your problems to forums be kind enough to provide other members with the tank statistics and other features of your tank like stocking level and water parameters - also what feed you use and what is the water change schedule
