    Default Cardinal Tetras

    Hi all

    I keep 20 or so adult Cardinal Tetras with 8 4" juvenile discus.

    Woke up this morning to find half a Cardinal body on the bottom of the tank. So if you are wondering whether discus will eat cardinals, the answer is yes!

    Cardinals are great with discus, but they're temporary...

    They last longer if you grow them to full size before you dump them in the Discus' tank.

    Most Discus are voracious eaters .
    Having a partially eaten fish does not mean it died from being eaten.
    Fish eat fish ,most eat dead fish whether by our own hands or not .
    How long have you had the cards ?
    I am not proclaiming the discus innocence just saying you may want to look closer .

    Yeah, it doesn't work. They aren't really compatible.

    They will disappear one by one. The rummy nose is a bit bigger, but I've watched discus take them out too.
