How should I go about setting up their tank? I'm doing a species tank and would like them to feel at home as much add possible..... Any ideas?

Hi Yu'll have to put few stones but plenty of plants(Anubias, Cryptocorines,) the harder the leafes are, the better, some very fine sand and a good water quality.The aim is to have plenty of hideouts where the females can retreat if the male is too harassing.

Hi Ratbones, very few rocks(one pile in a corner), their habitat is the open water and the papyrus fringes where plants are in great number.
