    Welcome. I have been a discus breeder for 20+ years. Discus are great but can be tricky. The biggest issue is water quality. Most will not do the water changes needed. Also most insist on having gravel and plants both of which really hurt you water quality ( I know planted tank people will tell you different but facts are facts ...LOL ). If you want big nice discus like you see pictures of it requires healthy fish to start with, lots of high protein food, and because of this lots of water changes. If you don't do these things you will end up with small 4 to 5 inch stunted fish instead of the 6 to 7 inch beauties you are looking for.
