Can 4 female discus live together?

Im really interested in keeping discus fish but i was told i need atleast 4-6 unless they're a pair, so i was going to get 4 but then i was told once they reach maturity they will pair off and ill have to move the non paired up discus into separate tanks which i cant really afford to do,so i thought i'd get a pair but I'm not sure if they can live with other tank mates (tetra fish) because they become quite aggressive. Can i get 4 females together, or males? Or will they become to aggressive towards each other?

Please help!
