Having trouble getting 2 discus to eat they don't appear to be fast enough to get to the food (frozen bloodworms )
Should I trust mince beef or something else?

I've never kept discus but I see from another post that you just bought the discus. As with all new fish it takes a few days maybe even weeks for them to settle in to a new tank. You could call seahorse and ask what they feed their discus and you use the same until they settle in. What other fish are in the tank with them. Adult discus will eventually dominant a tank but youngsters can be very shy.

They love beefheart, the problem with it is once they start eating it they might not want to eat anything else, 2 fish might not feel too secure as they like to be in larger groups, what else have u got in the tank

A bit of a mix. They seem pretty happy now after a few days, push each other about every now and again ( the discus I mean ).eating beef heart and tetra prime now.

Beef heart and tetra prime should be all you need for feeding them but I would consider if possible to move some of the fish you have in with them on.......I don't know the size of your tank but I personally would get rid of the Rainbows,Gourami's,Betta and Guppies and add a few more Discus and have a much larger group of Rummynoses,but that would be all dependant on tank size though and of course is just what I would do.............i'll assume all fish are tank bred so if your happy with the mix you have then keep it that way ok

All the best

Just wondering how the beta gets along, I was told betas will fight to death with any fish that looks nice.

Betta gets on great no problems he just mouches about the tank looking good, nobody bothers him and he ignores everyone
Works out ok

Aqua one 100.
Great filter, water parameters spot on
But no room for more Discus, unless I get bigger tank
