Looking forward to hearing what you choose.
They are best in a group. The males are one of the most beautiful aquarium fish, without a doubt. I now have a group of 10 (5m/5f) in my 90g, they were spawning yesterday, eggs flying everywhere. Males will periodically decide to race each other, usually two but sometimes a third joins in; side by side, down the length of the tank at incredible speeds, fins flared...quite the site. Their scales reflect every colour of the rainbow.
