you can cram 6 in a Bb tank till they get to be adult size.
if its planted then i would say 4,but chances are you will run into issues.

If this is you first time keeping Discus I would have recommend going to simplydiscus. They will be able to help you. Discus would be better of in a group of 5 or 6, a 40 gal breeder BB might be fine with juveniles for a bit but they would soon outgrow it and need to be moved into a larger tank. Discus need lots of water changes, good food and stable water. They are a lot of work but really worth it.
