however, some ppl have managed to bred the tefe green and heckel in captivity..
those bred in captivity are not as demanding as the wild counterparts

ya its ok.. discus are terrortorial fishes. all cichlids are terrortorial.. just make sure that they dont overdo the bullying!

okie but does it happen to everyone who keeps discus? I have one which tries to chase others off during feeding. and the largest one occasionally tries to push its weight around.
