    You are in a hard spot for keeping discus. 38 gallons is small for a group but you can still grow out several youngsters together and then either upsize the tank if you can find the space or you can decrease the discus number and hope for the best. Young adults are okay on their own. It comes down to how much you want to succeed with Discus. Right now your tank is not really optimal for the one you have. It looks stressed. It may settle in and do ok but its just not how it usually works out.

    If I were to get another one, is there no other way around doing a quarantine first? I wouldn't be completely opposed to getting a 10g tank. Are you saying the discus alone wont live a healhty, happy life on its own? I do plan on getting a 55g or more within 6 months..
