I would pass on Discus with a 30 gallon tank. It just is not big enough. Spernd a few hours reading SD and you will see what to do.

Hi Robbie and welcome to Simply. You may find keeping discus a bit different then keeping other cichlids. You will find a wealth on information on this site and I suggest you start in the beginner section. You will find a variety of sticky's which will help you discover this wonderful fish. A good starting point is here http://forum.simplydiscus.com/showthread.php?86009-Beginner-s-Guide-to-Getting-Started-with-Discus. As you read you will discover due to the size of discus a 30 gallon is too small for adults but is a good starting point for a grow out tank depending on the number of juvies.
