Hi Farmapack,

It is really going to depend on what the other species in the tank are. To have them show their best color and behaviors a species only tank is always going to be best, but of course you are going to need more then just two males and two females. Its not impossible to increase the size of your group from just (4) but it can be more difficult. When kept with other species the possibility of crossing increases.
