The rummynose and the glowlights for sure would be fine, the presillas are iffy and the buenos aires and the black phantoms are definitely no.

The key to deciding on the compatibility of any fish with Discus is the species level of aggression. It just depends on how nippy or just straight up aggressive a fish is as to weather or not it is compatible with Discus. IME Blind Cave Fish should be fine.
