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
generally the conventional rulesay us that provide 10 gallon per adult discus.so for you 55 gallon you can provide 6 adult discus...and for compatible fish with discus fish you can check out this link..Discus Fish Care Secrets: COMPATIBLE FISH WITH DISCUS FISH
