i would say 25, but if you have good filtration maybe 30. you could always go more becuase if you get a jerk or 2 you may have to remove them. so i say go with more and let the sorting begin. :drooling:

Just a suggestion - I have 35 male peacocks and 3 synodonis in a 180 gal well aerated and filtered tank. I probably could add another five but I feel that it would be a push. These male peacocks were hand selected from a reputable dealer, paying close attention to avoiding
look-alikes. The process with me took place over weeks.

I believe I have the same tank as you (Ocean View?). I currently have 15 fish in my tank. Most are small but I do have a couple of larger ones. How large are the fish in your tank currently? You have to look foward to the end when ALL of these fish are adults pushing 5-7" (5-11" in my case :wink:). I'm suffering with the same empty look, but I'll max out at no more than 20 total fish. Think of the end results or with overstocking all of the possible aggression and filtration issues. If you do go with the 150 instead, your number sounds about right, or maybe 30. Just my point of view... :)

btw. I already had a bad issue with similar colored peacocks, so be careful with that as well.
