As noted in our profile, this species is best when kept as a pair. This can depend upon the tank size. While a group of one male and 3 females would be OK in general, with sufficient space, during spawning the "extra" females might be hounded. Both the male and female can be very protective of the eggs and fry. This is common for most all the dwarf cichlids.
