Opinions. Group of young discus in a 40 gallon

Define young and how long do you intend to keep them in there? How many also?

between 1”-2” 4-5 and until they need a bigger tank I know they are slow growers!

Imagine that would be fine for now. Obviously be mindful of the fact they can get stunted pretty easily from what I recall. Raising the babies is a challenge in itself and I am no where near an expert on this and its been many many years since I had discus so I would say research a good deal on raising the babies so ya do it right. I believe lots of feedings, lots of water changes, spartan tank (to facilitate cleaning), good filtration but not to strong.....

Like I said do your research and get some more opinions/experienced views. Oh and they are not necessarily slow growers.
