I'm interested to hear some of your setups. As mentioned I have 20 discus, 6 angels & a lot of smaller fishes in my setup. I am also making a pleco collection ..... Currently have Golden Nugget, Snow ball, Flash, Para, Green Phantom, Albino, Black Bristlenose, Whiptail. There are also a couple of cories. The bioload is high but I will upgrade to a 10' - 325 to 350G next year.

Wow! 20 in a 125!! That's way too many! I have just one in my 20 gallon but have ordered another. Here's an interesting video that you may find useful.

Yes, Ideally it should be 13, but with weekly WC, strong control on water quality & a plan to change to a larger tank I should be fine. The fishes are doing very well too. The tank mates in the video are the same I have....Plecos, cories, various tetras & Rams.

That is going to be a very stunted fish.

Buying one Discus and putting it into a 20g with intentions to purposely stunt its growth, hardly qualifies as getting into Discus. Sorry.

I guess you didn't hear. I ordered another one so I think that qualifies me as officially a discus enthusiast.
