I would try to get something bigger like I'm sure everyone else will tell you.

But if your starting out with juveniles they would be fine for awhile in a 40B. 75G would be way better and could house them for life.

Males need there space, I would not add any rocks or maybe just one single river rock in the middle of the tank.

Species only in 40B, just be ready to upgrade your tank, my big male is just over six inches to give you an idea of a large adult.

I moved my group of juvenile kilesa from the 30 gallon quarantine to the 180 and the change was almost instantaneous. Once they went in the big tank the males all started to color up and build nests. In my experience (limited) the larger tank will be appreciated (as will a fine grained substrate).





These pics were taken 4 days after introduction to the tank
