I found a free 55 gallon complete setup on Craigslist, and it is cycling as we speak :) So in about a month from now, I am getting my fishies!
I am getting Green Terrors. Right now they are about 2 inches in length, if that. How many should I get for the 55 gal? They are all siblings and the same age, if that matters. Also, their mom has the orange stripe on her tail as well, are the sexes colored different or not?

Get 6 now and let them pair up, keep one pair and re-home the others. Once they mature you'll only be able to keep one pair in a 55 gallon. Even then, You may have to keep a divider handy in case the male gets too rough with the female.
