Thinking of stating a Species only tank for some Polit. Any advise from current or previous experiences with this species. My plan is to start with some juveniles 8-10 in a 40 gallon breeder due to the wider foot print. Once males start to color up I was going for a ratio of 1M - 5F to help keep the females from getting bullied. If you have any pics of fish or tank set ups please share. :fish:

This is a fairly aggressive species, yet not all that easy to get them to color up. Not sure you would get more than one male to color in a 36" tank.

That's all I'm really looking for in the 40 breeder. Looking to get one Male to be the focus in there and really show off for the ladies. We don't see too many people keep them so just trying to be a little different and think outside the box.
