Its best you have at least 20gal just for the pair. You might know discus will take care of their fries and the fries feed on the slime from the body of the parents. You can start with brine shrimp once fries are 1cm plus or so, that will be about two weeks plus. Also bare bottom tank is the best.

This is a learning hobby, we learn from each other's experience. Sometimes what works for me will not work for you. Do some reading up on the net/website, there are plenty of info.
