I considered gelatin, but have read concerns about it and fish digestive

The main fish magazine in Britain (Practical Fishkeeping) keeps on going on about how beefheart is very bad for discus, as the animal fats that are liquid at warm-blooded temperatures don't stay liquid in a cold-blooded fish (like the grease that builds up beneath a chicken after you have cooked it and then allowed it to cooled)... true or false?
