    I would stick with the rainbows since the discus need 6+ to feel comfortable, but rainbows would look good. :)

    Order online? Any overnight shipping cost is going to be cheaper than the time and gas spent driving that far.

    Basically you don't get a discus or two, that's a recipe for disaster. Without any other fish in it your tank can hold 6 adult discus, which is more or less the recommended minimum if you want them to thrive and stay stress free. I would recommend you look for some other fish instead. That will save you money and future trouble....
