Discus are pretty sensitive to nitrates. Probably overkill on the WC's since the tank is heavily planted. They are still pretty young fish, and their immune system is not completely developed, so I err on the side of more is better.
Probably two per week would be sufficient.

Okay, was just checking because they looked almost the exact same but the buyer ended up with an amazing deal on them and was wondering who it was. I think they only paid $5-7 for the pair.

Exactly! Lol
I was shocked, had I felt comfortable caring for discus in general I would have out bid the guy but I'm not quite there yet.
