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.
Yes, I kept six juveniles in 75 gallon tank and then moved them to 80 gallon tank as they reached adult size.
I too would recommend minimum of five Discus for they are social fish that feel more comfortable in a group.

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.

Thanks all. I would like a group of Discus but right now I am not equipped to handle their needs so until I get another larger tank, I will hold off.
