So i have a 40 gallon tank ready to roll, i want to introduce fish here shortly, water is ideal and its time for the fun stuff. How many should i buy at one time? Pairs? Schools of 3? For sure frontosas and calvus's are my 1st choices... i just dont know how many to get at a time. Any thoughts?

Frontosa need a 72" tank so skip them.

For calvus buy six and end up with a pair.

No you rehome the 4 before the dominant pair can kill them.

You could also do a colony of multifasciatus. A 36" tank does not provide enough room for a varied community.
