I just need a stand for it (will purchase a filter, heater and substrate also, of course).
And perhaps I can try Discus! And........will even try "cycling" the tank without the 'chemicals', which will be a big first for me. I have always used the biological supplements, with no fish loss, but since joining the Forum have discovered that supplements like Cycle are not for the fish.
You'll need 55 gallons minimum for 4-6 discus, not 30 gallons.
With 30 gallons, only a pair may fit but it still is not advisable as the pair will only end up bullying each other and perhaps, stunting their growth due to limited size.
