Keep in mind that Discus need soft water with a ph in a range of 6.5-6.8. They also need about 25% of their water changed every day.
Guppies on the other hand require a higher ph range of about 7.2-7.8 accompanied with a bit of aquarium salt in the water at a ratio of 1 tablespoon per every 5 gallons of water.
