Discus should be wormed, most carry large amounts of intestinal parasites.............
Check with the person you are buying your stock from to see if they have been treated, they should be as part of the quarantine process, but some suppliers are lax in this department,
The new regulations prevent too much information being supplied here, but if your fish haven't been treated, add to this thread,

Don't worry if your fish haven't been wormed, it can be easily sorted, but don't let the seller know, it's a bargaining point to get a discount!!!!
Hopefully it will make them do it next time, if they have been treated, ask what with just to be sure, we can talk you through it,
