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.

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.
