I've been keeping them in my planted tanks for years. They love having
lots of room, and become quite the busy bodies swimming about and
inspecting everything. I feel so sorry for the ones I see at the pet
shop, stuck in a dixie cup. Awful. I always have at least one "rescue"
around here---LOL. After you see them in a large tank with plants and
lots of room, you'll never be able to stomach seeing them in a tiny tank
again. As everyone else already stated, you can only have one male to a
tank, tho. Having said that, my dad did have 2 males in a 20 gal. long
that got along OK. Each picked a side and stuck to it. But I think
that's pretty unusual.
