keeping altum angel with discus

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

What size is your tank?

Discus should really be kept in a larger group. This maybe why you are seeing aggression.

I've seen Angels kept with discus but never tried it personally. Some people advise not to do it.

You should have an 75G tank at minimum for Discus and Altum Angels get very large, like an adults hand if spread wide open.

Poor OR less than ideal water quality can also cause fish to get agitated.

Temp needs to be good for the Discus like 82F / 27.5C MINIMUM.
