    I have 2 discus but the bigger is always picking on the smaller one so i gave one to my friend annd im planning to keep an altum angel with my discus to add more collection into my tank.
    Have anyone try keeping just one altum angel and one discus together before? Did your fish get along well?

    im planning to get a wild altum

    Welcome to the AC.

    I've never kept discus or angels, but my guess is if the larger discus was harassing the smaller one, it would do the same thing to a single angel.

    And if I'm not mistaken, angels need to be kept in groups, anyway.

    What size tank do you have?

    Only keeping 2 cichlids generally won't work out due to aggression issues. Your larger discus has already shown that it is very territorial in nature, and it will pick on the altum. How big is your tank?

    Yeah, I would tend toward getting more discus, if you have room. With more territorial fish, having a school will spread out the aggression so no one fish gets terrorized. I assume this is so with discus, since most people seem to keep them in largish groups.

    try a regular angel, real altums are too rare and expensive to experiment with. also as said angles and discus should be kept in groups.
