I put a pair of them in my 10g tank and have three juvies left after they had babies.
I've since put the female in another 10g tank. They are listed as "experienced keepers" where it says experience level required on one site(Sach's) that I get them from.
So now I have that one female in one of my two 10g tanks and one adult male and two female and one male juvie in the other 10g tank. Plan on moving the male juvie to the tank/w the adult female soon.
Beautiful scape, love the slope. I would think about getting a second tank for one of them. a 20L tank can support a couple or even a few but the smaller tanks put them
too close to each other IMO. The 10g do fine/w one but I anticipate fighting if/when the juvie male gets much bigger. The adult chases him now but not too much and it's usually a short chase and not continous.
The shortest distance between any two points is a straight line...in the opposite direction...
