I wouldn't recommend keeping a discus or even a group in it unless you can find a bonafide pair which is the only thing suitable for that tank size.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Agreed, first thing I'd suggest if you want discus is a bigger tank, 55G minimum. For a 29 schooling tetra like rummynose, cardinals, etc are good, maybe even some livebearers like swords & platys, just be aware that you probably can get about 20-25 fish, tops, in there depending on size & disposition. HTH!!
