- Setup the aquarium with plenty of rocks, and visual barriers to help mitigate territorial disputes. Keep in groups of 4+ . A large aquarium (15 gallons<) is usually required for a group of 4-5. If a group is well aquatinted, and have been kept in smaller aquariums (i.e a shop tank) without any trouble, one could keep a quartet in an aquarium of around 10 gallons (with some clever aqua scaling and aquarium design. However, this is an exception rather than a rule, so ideally shoot for 20 gallons.
