Could anyone please give me some advice on good tank mates for discus? I do not want to overstock so looking for smaller fish that do well in schools. Considering black tetra's and / or neons but just want to get some alterative recommendations.

Regards

My tank is about 320 litres adding my external canister filter and I have 8 2 inch discus in. I matured the water for 6 weeks and my plants have rooted and seem to be stable.
