I would choose either the hongi or the saulosi (both blue barred fish). Maybe the hongi since females look more different from the labs than the saulosi females.

I would do 4 females in each group. Maybe 7 females for the hongi. Five species might work in a 60" tank...it's a LITTLE wider than the usual 18" tank.

See what other vendors can offer. You don't want more than one male/group...the worst case scenario would be to get all males.

What we do is order 2X as many unsexed juveniles as the target number of females. So for 4 females order 8 unsexed juveniles. Then rehome extra males if/when they start to cause trouble.
