What would be a minimum size tank and minimum number you would need to have very happy, healthy fish?
Tank: four feet in length. I would suggest after that, a 70-75g volume would be minimum. It could be managed with a 55g, but for the extra few inches in width, go for the 70-75. Or for a few inches more in depth, a 90g, same "footprint." I have a 70g and 90g, filter is the same for either, same heating requirements, same substrate volume. With discus, the added height would be nice. I believe kymmie has a 90g, 1077 I believe is 75?
I would recommend 5 discus minimum.
