What size tank do you need to have a school of discus? And what pH do they require? (My well water is 7.6 and so far my community fish are doing well in it. Guess they haven't read the books and aren't on this group.

6.5 - 7.5 or so. In general fish dont care about ph as long as it doesn't fluctuate. I would say discus are the exception to that.
