how big is your tank? I love harlequin rasboras... I think they are so sweet, fairly hardy, peaceful, energetic, and just so fun to watch. I started out with three in my 10g tank at work, housed with guppies and platies. I wanted a bigger group so i brought them home and bought a bunch more... I now have 10 of them in my 67g tank, with mollies, angelfish, and a honey gourami. They are very impressive in a bigger group, and they are happier... I think I will probably end up with a few more.
It is pretty hard to tell the difference between males and females. I think i have read that the edge of the blue on males is a sharper, more vertical line, whereas the females have a softer, rounder edge at the bottom. Or i could have that backwards... check the profile for them - second tab from the left on the top of the page here.
