Many types of fish can live with Discus, big and small. Preferably smaller, you can keep many types of fish which carry just about every colour and pattern you can think up. There are some rules though, you shouldn't keep any large South American cichlids with Discus. Generally, the South American cichlids are very aggressive, and this will bother your Discus way too much for their comfort. The Discus like to be the King or Ruler of the tank that they are in, so just keep that in mind. Also, about the "If it will fit in it's mouth, it will end up  there" quote, it will most likely not happen if you keep your Discus well fed. Below are the different types of fish you can keep with Discus, listed into their general area.
