I would rehome the knife, add 2-3 more discus and fill out the corys school to 5-7 species and call it a day.

Yea I'll prob sell the knife to the pet store. So I must get 5-7 more corys? The only thing is my discus are bottom feeders and I feed them tetra granulars (which fall to the bottom) and blood worms which also fall to the bottom. I am afraid f the cores eating all the food before my discus cn get their share. Advice plz

Corys playfulness and antics really come to life when they are in schools. I prefer sterbsai or bronze corys since they seem to handle the heat a little better. Discus are fairly messy eaters and having corys in a tank is a great way to handle any uneaten food.
