I've read they are perfect "desk" fish and can be kept in a 5 gallon, though I wouldn't do that. They guard an area of 6 inches, so I guess a 10 gallon is sufficient. I'm still deciding. I'll post pictures for sure if I get a pair. The problem is, getting a male and female. They aren't that easy to sex. I have to trust the fish store guy, as he seems to know. Hmmmm
