54 g Discus Tank ....can they survive???

I have a 54 g corner tank, heavily planted - good water parameters.
Can 3 discusautolinker.com autolinking image survive in a tank like this. I know I read that they should be a minimum of 5-6 but I don't want to overstock, I know discusautolinker.com autolinking image need a lot of room.

Tanks in advance !

for sure they can survive and thrive, however you may add 1 more.
how much is their size? is it fully grown ?

Re: 54 g Discus Tank ....can they survive???

I have not got any discusautolinker.com autolinking image yet, I always wanted them, but I want to make sure they are in a perfect enviroment. I know they are a special fish to take care of and I want to give them the best possible care.
I have read and studied them for 2 years now and the perfectionist always say 5 is the minimum. So I am hoping 3 (or4) with a small school of tetras would work. I am working on a some what heavily planted tank .My water parameters have been constant for 2 years now, I change 40% water change every week and sump change (20g) in between.


Tanks for your input & help

hello my dear,

3- 4 is a perfect number in addition to a school of tetras which will give your discusautolinker.com autolinking image a sense of stability and peace.
please take into consideration the size and age of your discusautolinker.com autolinking image.
your water change is very good comparing to the consistency of water you have, i do exactly the same as well
