If I wanted to do a species tank of Borleyi in my 75 Galloin (4 foot) tank. What should I go with males /females numbers?

I would not do borleyi in a 75G at all. These are 8 inch bulky fish.

In a 72" tank you could do 3m:12f and another species or two.

Height seems to be important to these fish. I'd have no problems breeding them in a 4ft tank, but it would need to be 24" tall. I'd agree on not using a 75 gallon, and obviously, the bigger the tank the better. They looked quite good in my 7ft 265 gallon.

They are a large, bulky and active fish from my experience
