Just a heads up-
make sure to buy an electronic heater, as opposed to the old contact type.
Generally, electronic heaters will fail "off".

I think this is why I like mailing lists better than forums.
I get to read all the good stuff without hunting for it.
I used to keep discus in a 10 gallon tank with plants. They all got
along just fine, but a 10 gallon tank seemed cruel for some reason.
I eventually graduated to a 55 gallon tank and things got better until a
heater failure raised the temperature enough to boil the plants and the
other fish. The discus loved it. I was not so happy.
My advise is to make sure you have adequate temperature control and
select plants that can take the heat.
Someday, I may try discus again.
