Hey all!

Discus never really entered my mind as a possibility for mine and my father's 55 gallon tank, but for some reason I just thought about it, but I'm not sure if it's even possible.

I've read in some places that they're a schooling fish, and in other places that they're not. Would a 55 even be big enough for a group of 5 or 6 of them? Also, would I still be able to keep them with an angel, a bn pleco and a school of 15-20 characins?

I don't know much a bout Discus yet except that they are sensitive and require pristine water conditions (which I'm pretty confident I can maintain since I do at home.) I'm going to research them now--but I want expert opinions!

Thoughts? I haven't suggested it to dad so if this idea gets totally shot down no big deal.
