I thought you can keep 5-6 discus in this tank. You need follows this tips:

1. Controlled feeding
2. Frequent water change
3. Good filtration

Wait the response of others.

Any dead fish can flow down the river but it takes a live one to swim back up stream.

As per me that length should be atleast 4 foot. For bigger suggest go for the blue strains since they are hardier by a small margin.
