They can be aggressive while mating, how ever assuming your tank is large enough and well enough planted you would be fine

My experience of GBRs have been quite pleasant so far. I wouldn't say they have been difficult to care for either, I think it all rests on picking healthy fish and meeting their requirements of enough space, water parameters and a varied diet.
I just feed mine a good quality flake food, tubiflex, bloodworm and the odd bit of algae waffer.
- 20 gallon: Posh shrimp tank:2 panda taiwan bee shrimp, 14 F1 hybrid bee shrimps and 30 taitibee
- 15 gallon: 2 x 24watt T5 + 23watt LED, pressurised Co2 injections and dosed with ferts

We picked up our betta tonight and I was talking to my trusted fish dude and he made me feel a lot better about possibly getting them. So.... it has moved back to 'pondering the idea' for now.40 gallon FW -1 male halfmoon betta named Max, 2 GBR's (Peter and Lois) who better clean up their act, 11neon tetras (damn GBR's killed one), 12 black neon tetras, 2 assassin snails, and 1 albino BN pleco named Tiberius.
