    Good comments by Judi.

    Just give them some time - they'll eventually settle in to a mild back & forth moderate pecking, to continually re-affirm what they've already established in the pecking...

    Yes, that is pecking order being established, and it will probably worsen to the point of possibly being serious with just 4 discus - that's not a good number to keep.

    That's good advice from Cliff.

    To add to that, don't neglect doing regular, large water changes, and get reasonably good-sized (i.e. more mature) discus from an experienced source well-known for...

    You might consider Discus. 5 or 6 of them would do well in your sized tank, and would look great.
    They're not particularly hard to keep, so long as you get larger, good quality, healthy fish from a...

    You no doubt noted I said "most" LFS's. There are a few (a minority unfortunately) that know their discus, know how to care for them, & succeed at doing so.

    Perhaps this is one of them - if so,...

    If they're like most LFS's, they likely have very little idea how to maintain discus properly, and probably don't much care to know either.
    That's why I always strongly advocate avoiding LFS's for...

    BTW, please forgive me if you feel I've been pushing discus at you more strongly than I should do - it's just my enthusiastic passion for these fish coming out. I don't mean to be overdoing it.

    6 fish would be better than 5.
    You can keep 6 discus in a 55 gal tank, if there are no other, or very few, other tank-mates.
    As examples, if you want some takmates, you could have 6 discus, and 3...

    Keep in mind that keeping just 2, 3, or 4 discus is not usually a good idea. It's often an invitation for bullying behavior.
    This often results in pecking order aggression of a serious nature.

    # 3 above by Rocksor is your best bet.

    I believe it's really quite simple- you have a turquoise and a cobalt that really just don't get along - and pecking order takes precedence with just 2 fish...

    Here's hoping the addition of Cory Cats and BNP's without QT won't result in any cross-contamination to the discus.

    Your reasoning for getting 4 is good, but perhaps you should have considered a larger tank in the first place.

    If you want to keep 5 or 6 discus, you'll need at least a 60 gal tank - larger if you want to keep tank-mates with them.
