Welcome to the forum, Tyrone.

I'd suggest a 5-10 gallons to start with so there is plenty of space for the gravid females to hide from the male when they are near the time of dropping the fry.

Good luck.:)

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
