I plan on buying ~50g tank in a couple months and would really love some discus in it. I was wondering what I should know about them before plopping them in a tank. Thank you!

Thank you for the links! I have had fish for maybe around 3-4 months and was always wanting discus.

I have been wanting "Discus" since I started keeping "Wet Pets".
During "Research" I knew I was not ready. Now 2 years later, just about to start my journey, "Discus" to arrive Friday.
I posted a thread looking for info, might be helpful, take a look here:

Learning all the Time.

Good Luck!

I wouldn't keep them in a 50 gallon long term honestly, they need loads of work and near pristine water conditions.
