    Endlers or Guppies as discus tankmates

    Hi every one ,
    I have 2 tanks with discus and sterbies corys as tank mates , the question i like to ask is '
    . Is endlers or guppies a good tank mates for discus?
    . Is it true that live bearers carry parasites that is ok for them but not good for discus ?
    The idea is that the fries will be the live food for discus and their population will be controlled that way.
    Has any body has had any practical experience with these fish and discus and which one have you have been happier with ?
    Any comment would be appreciated .

    G'day mate, what temp are your tanks, discus like it warm, mine were always kept at 28-30C. IME guppys don't like it that hot, I have over 200 endlers now in a 24C planted tank and they just keep breeding. Also from personal experience I've seen my Discus will team up and eat tetras when they sleep, they hunt in a pack of 2-4 and just rip the little bugger apart, I don't see your guppys ending up any better.
