I'm pretty sure many of you have had experience with this or otherwise
one of the other species. A couple questions for you guys. Obviously
no right or wrong answer but experience is always insightful.

Would a group of 5(2 males...3 females) be enough to start a colony off with?

Have you had problems with males being territorial? NANFA article
mentions them patrolling territories of 13 square cm(135mm) which
makes one of the small bowls some reccomend into one whole territory

How big of a tank do you reccomend?

How prolific have they been?

How did you induce breeding? Are there any disadvantages with not
keeping the fish "in sinc" with natural seasons?

Last hard(y) are the fry?

Hope to hear back from you guys soon-Thanks!
