Hey all, i got a 55 gallon up and running for a couple weeks now, All i got in it is 10 cardinal tetras. I don't want alot of fish in this tank. Sooo I was wondering if i found some Discus could a 55 gallon tank handle say 5 of them?

I would think 5 to start out with but you may need to thin down to 3 when they start getting bigger and your cardinals may become a tasty snack for them when they start getting bigger. I know you didnt ask but I dont know about adding a pleco as I have heard they have been known to eat the slime coat off the discus

A rubber lip or bristlelip pleco will be best for the discus, they arent known to attach to living creatures.

I highly doubt the discus will be able to get the cardinals in their mouth, my angels cant fit em in and they are a couple years old

If its just the discus and cards, I think you will be fine.
