Start with a group of 4-5. Minimum tank size is 55g. Keep the tank barebottomed to allow the discus to grow properly without risk of stunting their growth. Your best source is your local breeders, not the LFS.

Are they difficult? No. It's all a matter of giving them a little more attention here and there compared to other fish.
