All help is appreciated.

You can fit quite a few, and if the setup works out, you'll soon have more, but I wouldn't start with too small a number so that the aggression can be spread around. I'd say start with 12-18.

Almost needless to say, but for this to work you need good filtration, and you need to keep up with the water changes :thumb:

I have almost the same dimensions without the bow; so mine is 38 gallons.

I have 3 male and 8 female saulosi. Very active but very balanced - all three males are coloured up. I could probably fit a few more females in without upsetting things.
