    Are the discus eating? If they are, do partial water changes, make sure the filtration is working as it should, mine are at a PH of 6.3 to 7.0 they do fine.

    If you have ammonia in a discus tank, then your ph is not correct. ph below 7 produce ammonium. Discus need a Ph of 6.

    Do a full water change right away and buffer the ph to what is appropriate for the fish. 

    You could call local vets offices to see if they can keep the fish for you until your parameters are correct. Sadly if you can't find a good established tank, odds are you will lose the fish. I don't know why you would spend that kind of money on the fish before knowing how to care for them. Live and learn.
