View Full Version : Discus tank mates

hey guys I was just wondering what other types of cichlids you can keep with your discus... I would like to keep Severums as they are my favorite fish but I think that they may be a little bit too aggresive for them...waht are your thoughts?

Although I've seen them together, it was in a very big show tank. IMO, it wouldn't be a good idea. The severums would probably bully the discus too much. How 'bout trying oscars ;)

I don't keep any other fish with juvenile discus. Even Plecos will steal their food.

hmmmm im gonna need something a little smaller than an oscar if i do this... I wonder if say Keyhole cichlids would be considered too small

The best tank mate for a discus is a group of discus. ;D

Rummy Nose and Cardinals! They are nice and small, swim in groups and do not bother the Discus
