discus tank size

I had discus about four years ago in a 29 gal. they were growing, had great color ect. Question is I'm tearing down my 20 gal. Long and moving everything to a 40 gal breeder (Sw) Is a 20 gal long not tall enough, 13inches. I'm thinking it is not tall enough.

Thanks, I didn't think a 20 gal long would work. Maybe I'll go with shellies since my tap water is hard. Got to do some thinking about what I want.....
