Discus vs African Peacocks?

As the title suggests, which would you keep?

Discus, but they are very hard to keep as they require very good water conditions

I know, but it's not always sure, and they are still very sensitive fish.

As long as the tank is run in for 6 months stable and you dot have a loud room and you shut off the lights for 4-6 days on introducing your fish in minimum 2 preferably 3 at a time and not to run around the tank or have loud music ever oh and have the best frozen food and dry food and flake oh and mine hate tv! so you will do fine see easy

Oh and I forget you need to move out of the room the tank is in for the 4-6 days only niping in to feed under low light that is on a dimer brought up slow and you lot think an Oscar can sulk thay will sometimes stop eating for up to 2 months at 9 inches if you move there favourite plant or sometimes if you trim it but yeh not bad as thay were in the old days

If i get discus i would probably get an r/o unit to lower the ph alittle and make the water soft. I heard disucs are sensitive aswell. I really like them, but theyre expensive fish too.

They don't go for that much. I know a local breeder that sells to me 3'' for 5$ because i know him, usually it's 15$, but when they are 5'', the prices go up to 70$, and the higher the more expensive
