They are, but discus are generally kept at temperatures of 84-86F, which is very warm water. Most Amazon fish are from slightly cooler regions than that and few cories can survive at temperatures over 80F for long.

taking a break from fish-keeping.

It will shorten their lives long term in long term warmth.. but if this is just a summer thing and it'll cool down in the winter generally the fish do fine.
