    Hi and welcome Andy .
    Your stocking list sounds OK to me.
    Apistos can be a little aggressive when they spawn and ward their "house with kids " but given the size of your tank and your discus it will be nothing they can't handle IMO .

    Is your tank ready and cycled yet ?
    Can we see any photos of your tank scenery yet ?

    It has been a while since I had bleeding hearts but from memory they are reasonably competitive feeders - any others with experience with these. Otherwise sounds fine but you are missing a bristle nose catfish.

    It is currently stocked with Tropheus so need to sell them first. I will be buying Stendker Discus do to my water being harder.

    So geayi would be ok?

    Bolivian Rams are definitely okay and very colourful, so maybe look at them

    Google search "Stendker companion fish," and you will find a nice PDF by Stendker with a list of suitable tankmates for discus. I disagree with a couple of their catfish recommendations, but mixing fish is rarely perfect.

    I think they are going to be compatible with 4 more discus
    Water change is not just a chore, it's my life now...

    Hi Marc, I think an odd number of discus is a personal preference
