 Yes,  why  not.  As  long  as  your  discus  are  good  enough  in  size  to  cut  it  on  their  own  and  have  feast  on  the  earthworms.
 
 If  they  are  not  able  to  cut  them,  you  will  have  to  do  the  cutting  job.

 If  your  discus  are  3  inch  and  above  ,  just  drop  the  earthworm  in  to  the  tank  ,  they  will  tear  them  to  pieces  in  no  time  .
