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.
