How long have you been keeping them and can you explain some of the finer points of maintaining a good life for them?
oh I forgot to mention in my PM they will be happier in pairs than being alone.. so yes M/F pair all they way. Also the female is much smaller than the male so any tank that could handle a male could handle a M/F combo.
