55 is good for growing out discus or keeping 5-6 adults in it as a bare bottom tank. I wouldn't do discus in a planted 55 gallon, it can be done though, but they won't grow to full size. discus need 10 gallon per one adult. plus smaller discus are going to be more stressed and need higher temp, then adult discus. forum.simplydiscus.com would be a good place to ask your discus questions, and for plant questions i would talk to phil edwards aka chloriphil(spelling?) about plants. plus you need to at the min. change 30% two times a week for discus, and you got to age the water for 24-48 hours with a air stone and good dechlornater seachem prime is what i use. chloram-x is also good and is just like prime but cheaper. only thing is chloram-x is hard to find. only chloram-x i found local was a 5 gallon jug at 112.90 plus tax and that was at a whole sale price though a friend which can't get it any more.
Thanks, Joey. tanks-CUBE of different sizes.
