    You need the tank to be planted with common stem plants like Hygrophila and Ludwigia . Broad-leafed plants make nice spawning sites for a breeding pair of discus. While most breeders prefer a breeding cone or piece of slate, discus have often spawned on Anubias or Echinodorus leaves. Plant leaves make good spawning sites in a community tank since the other leaves on the plants help shield the spawning pair from other inhabitants as well as nosy aquarists.
