Seems like allot of food, but Discus _are_ big eaters.

As a result you may have more phosphate than you really want also.
Try increasing the water changes, or there are a few products on the
market that can reduce nitrates, one is called something like
Bacterblend.  It works.  There are also products to reduce phosphate,
but they can run into money.
