Would you like to tell us about a lower price for DS420+ (6GB)?Link to a DS420+ (6GB) review page Do I have to fill all the bays with drives?

You can start with any number of drives, and leave some room for future expansion. We recommend that you use exactly the same make and model of drive when expanding your RAID.
