I know people recommend a minimum 6 foot tank for F. rostratus......But how many can you keep in such a tank? As a breeding group.

1 male/ 2 females has worked for people. I would have 4 females because they look really cool when the females hang out together like they do and from time to time the male will stroll on in and say high.
It really depends on what else is in the tank with them.
I'd go with 2 males and 6 females.
