    @ OP,

    If you're getting domesticated discus, don't mess with the pH but keep water consistent so that you don't have to worry about the peat.

    I don't like keeping discus in groups smaller than 6. It's doable but 6 is just a good number to go by in terms of pecking order and general experience in keeping discus fishes.

    Angels can be kept with discus but you'll need a bigger tank.

    As far as dither fishes go, generally, any tetras should be safe so long as they're healthy and can out run a hungry and mean adult discus, .

    @ Sandz

    Congos are fine.
    Think with logic and rationality more than emotion. Act with moderation and consideration. Contemplate ideals and realistic goals and weigh out possibilities and options. Temper not with personal delusions or false hope but learn to accept and move on.

    I have a growing school of neon tetras (i say growing because it's so hard to get a round number to survive). I just purchased 10 and 7 survived, i'm trying to get a school of 20, right now I have 14. I will be ordering and picking up my discusfrom Hans (discusfishstore.com) sometime after christmas. His shop is about 10 minutes form my house and I had no idea! After the fish are in the tank and settled i will update the thread in my sig, so check in a few weeks for updates!

    Been a LONG time, but the Discus are still thriving. Here's a few pics.

    Nice tank indeed, I was reading the start of your thread before I realised how old it was. Nice to see you followed some of the earlier advice and also followed your own heart. Great job !!

    Under no circumstance house a pleco with discus; sooner or later it will feed on them (mostly very late at night so why 90% of the people never see this) leading to stress and possible death. Besides, that tank is too small for a pleco. Sterba Corries are outstanding fish to house with discus because they can tolerate the high temperatures that discus should be kept at (84 - 88 F.) Neons are fine with discus - they are generally too big to interest most discus in eating them. Your tank is small for a proper group but will work for four - just hope they get along enough so you don't have issues.
    Knowledge is fun(damental)

    A 75 gal with eight Discus, fake plants, and a lot of wood also with sand substrate. Clean up crew is down to just two Sterba's Corys. Filters: continuous new water flow; canister w/UV, in-tank algae scrubber!! Finally, junked the nitrate removal unit from hell.

    I enjoyed reading this thread. If nothing else it teaches me that I am still not ready for discus. Too much traveling for work.
