While it is important to feed your discus a variety of foods to ensure its diet is healthy and balanced, you can mix up the style depending on the day. Maybe you haven’t slept well and need the energy of the swirls and patterns of the discus firing up to the top of the water. Maybe it’s been a long day and you need to relax by watching them curiously scavenge and play along the bottom of the tank. Or maybe it’s just a normal Tuesday, nothing out of the ordinary, and you feed them a mix of both sinking and floating food. Your discus will enjoy it all just the same.
