I just got mine. 3 of em, 2 Males 1 Female. I plan on getting another 3. They are very active and fun to watch, especially when feeding them. They at first tried to play with the loaches, but the lazy buggers just ignored 'em. Now they just spend all day playing around the tank.

And having 2 males and 1 female, they males are constantly bright red trying to get her attention. I'm hoping they will breed and save me having to pay to get more ;) They aren't cheap around here.
