Well, as far as cichlids go, discus are not super aggressive. That said, they are CICHLIDS after all. :)

They tend to hang out in groups and have a pecking order. The top fish will keep them in line. If there are only a few individuals in the group, the smallest and weakest member gets picked on a lot. That is what you have to keep an eye out for.
