Oh god no they breed and grow like rabbits! But the male will be agressive and you will think that you need to rescue the female(s), but this happens in any sized tank.

I'm not sure of their availability in the US but they are common in Australia. There is an orange strain too...I'm not sure if that's natural or not. I prefer the yellow ones though.

BTW Leluepi are from Tangenyika, so they need the same water as Brichardi...extra hard and alkaline. Hope you can find some they are well worth it.

A little trick is to provide the two females with a cave each, then he'll visit either one from time to time, giving the other female a rest.

Have you looked at a pic of them? They are just a plain brillient a marine fish!!

leleupi are pretty cool fish I considered getting a pair of them at one point. I read in the wild they will drag female shell dwellers out of their shells to eat the young. Pretty awesome fish they look like little pikes. Lake Tanganyika is filled with all sorts of cool oddities.

"responsible fish keeper?... Didn't know there was any other kind"

I am not retarded I just can't spell
