New to the site

Hi there, I am new and glad to be here. I have a 30 gallon tank with two discuss and the bigger one spends most of its time chasing the smaller one. Doesn't seem to hurt it, just keeps pushing it in a corner. Any ideas how it can be stopped?

more discus as you should have them in 4 - 6 min with about 20lr of tank per fish so for you up to 6 dependent on other stock levels
Or you can add long grass or other plants the hight of the tank that will give cover for the smaller one but realy as thay are cichlids you nead to get the numbers up so that the aggression is shared around a good 10 or so cardinal tetra are a good idea thay seem to chill out discus and if they get eaten not to much to replace alot less than a discus
Hope that helps I am just about to start a 250lr tank for the discus in my grow on 90lr a 4 fish tank
They are the best fish good luck and messag me any time
