Thanks for the link. So from what I have read so far it seems they perfer open areas more so then a lot of rock work around. So I am assuming the the ratios should be around 1 male to 3-4 females. Any ideas for stocking levels?

I placed an order for 15 Flamebacks today. I plan to get the large group and slowly remove any troublemakers overtime if there are any. Pics to come.

They are all doing fine so far. Eating flakes and they don't don't seem to be shy at all. Come right up to the glass when I come in.
