 Move  the  angels  out,  as  they  will  feed  faster,  and  will  surely  outcompete  the  discus  with  regards  to  feeding.  Furthermore,  they  will  harbor  parasites  that  will  be  harmless  to  them,  but  will  harm  discus  in  the  long  run.
 
 You  can  keep  cardinal  and  rummy  nose  tetras  alongwith  discus.  You  could  keep  lemon  tetras  too.

 Dear  Tapan
 I  will  suggest  you  to  keep  Clown  loaches  rather  than  Pakistani  loaches  because  some  times  they  unnecessary  irate  and  disturb  other  tank  mates.  Also  widow  tetra  can  nib  the  fins  of  the  discuss  too.
 Regards
 Kaushik

 Hey  Tapan,
 You  can  keep  corys  with  discus,  i  have  kept  them  in  my  current  as  well  as  previous  setup  and  the  gel  together  really  nice....,  also  if  you  feed  the  discus  BHM  or  GHM  corys  would  clean  the  scraps  left  behind.

 Hi  Tapan,
 
 I  completely  agree  with  Tushar.  Cory's  make  a  very  good  addition  to  a  discus  tank  and  also  help  in  consuming  and  uneatin  food.  They  come  with  a  personality  of  their  own  and  look  amazing.  You  could  add  couple  of  them  belonging  to  the  same  species  or  assorted  .  Again  if  you  are  going  assorted  way  make  sure  that  you  add  atleast  4  of  their  kind.
 
                               Not  sure  but  some  cories  may  not  do  well  because  of  temperature.  Check  on  the  requirements  and  then  add  them.
 
    If  you  want  to  add  color  to  your  tank,  then  you  can  by  the  fish  list  mentioned  by  Nithin.
 
 Some  how  loaches  have  a  mind  set  of  theor  own  and  could  get  a  little  nasty.  Mind  you  that  they  have  spiny  bristals  and  one  should  handel  then  carefuly.-  This  is  again  based  on  my  experience.   One  more  thing,  if  you  ever  have  to  use  medication  in  the  display  tank  your  loaches  might  take  a  beating  as  they  are  scale  less  fish.  (  Members:  Kindly  correct  on  this,  if  I'm  wrong)
 
 BHM/GHM  -  Beef  Heart  Mix/Goat  Heart  mix.
 
 regards,
 Surya

 Hi,
 
 Okay.  Any  other  fish  which  is  easily  available  ?
 
 Also  why  feed  BHM/GHM  to  discus  ?  I  feed  them  blood  worms  and  dried  shrimps.
 
 Thanks.

 No..  No...,  blood  worms  or  tubiflex  worms  carry  bacteria/parasites  which  causes  intestinal  problem  and  ill  health  in  Discus.  IMO  live  food  like  blood/tubiflex  worms  is  not  suitable  for  Cichlid  species...,  not  sure  abt  dried  shrimps.  
 
       For  Young  Discus  to  grow  BHM/GHM  is  the  best  and  safe  source  of  proteins,  you  can  also  use  Hikari  Blood  Worms(they  are  dried  but  nutrients  well  preserved)...
 
 Go  through  'Discuss  Discus'   forum  on  IAH  and  you'll  be  upgraded  with  knowledge  on  Discus...
