Advice please

Postby Dxmum » Sun May 06, 2012 5:30 pm

I'm hoping for some honest advice please :?

I have a 40gallon tank that I'm planning to get setup as a low tech planted tank in the next 2 or 3 months. I previously had community fish in the tank , but it's not been used for a little while and therefore have a blank canvas to start over with. :)

I'm wondering whether the tank is big enough to house a couple of discus in?

My neighbour has 2 of these beautiful fish in a 45gallon tank, and he thinks my tank is tall enough (17" high) and will accommodative 2 discus adequately. I've spoken to a staff at a couple of LFS and both said that I could have 5 or 6 in a tank this size.

I would love to have discus, but before I go to far down the line, I want to make sure that I'd be doing right by them as I have not got the room to upsize the tank later.

All advice/opinions welcome :)

thank you
