The tank looks nice, but those discus are going to need a much larger tank. They get as large as a CD if given proper care. The juveniles need need near perfect water conditions which often mean daily large water changes. I highly recommend rehoming them to someone with the knowledge and time to take care of these fish.

+1 Discus need huge tanks -40 gallons is the minimum for a pair, where as you need around 75-100 gallons for a group of 4-8. Keep in mind that Discus need to be in schools.

Hey guys, thank you for the comments and suggestions! I planned to do all this already, i'm moving the rest of the fishes to another tank and i will be leaving a pair of the discus . I was doing this because they are juveniles and i wanted see who would pair off then i would make my decision

And i wont be giving them away no! i paid alot for them :) and this is not the first time i have kept discus fish. I do a 50 percent water change every week and i use expensive vitamins in the water just for them. So i assure you they are well taken care of
