Hold on there!

Are you talking about RAISING discus or BREEDING discus?

Growing a discus is best done in harder water. Breeding requires softer water.

Lots of people grow beautiful discus in water with much higher GH and KH than that.

OTOH, breeding will require RO water and/or peat filtration in order to hatch the eggs. After that, back to tap water.

You might try SimplyDiscus and DAAH forums for more discus info.

Oh, and you will need to get adult discus to add to a planted tank, they are very hard to feed properly in a planted tank, too much food escapes into the gravel and pollutes the water, sickening the discus. Adult discus do not need as much food for growth.
