Hi Surya,
You can keep 4 adult discus in your aquarium. You can keep more than 4 younger discus in that aquarium, but will have to do frequent water changes. Eventually, you'll have to take some out as the grow larger. The standard rule for discus is 1 adult discus per 10 gallons of water.

Here's a link with a listing of foods to feed your discus:

Here's some discus food recipes:

Hope that helps you out.

Keep the water pristine and you can keep 3-4 discus.
