I don't know if I would use epsom salt with discus. It raises the hardness of the water and discus like theirs neutral to soft. On the other hand I think they can adjust, but I would be careful, and ask some discus experts.

I use baking soda, epsom salt and marine salt in my african tanks. I do 1 tsp of baking soda and marine salt to 1 tbs of epsom salt per 5-10g depending on the type of fish.
