How many more?

Thread starter

So like different kinds of haps that look different, or just more electric blues?

I would do more electric blues.

But I heard that males that look alike can be aggressive with each other.

Do you think they will get along @Anders247? If I can do more electric blues, I will.

If you do enough males it should be OK.

You could add just one, because multiples will attack each other.

Look at their seriously fish profiles, that should help you.

I am probably just going to do a electric blue hap only tank. How many haps should I put in a 75?

Probably like 12.

With no females in the tank, there will be no competition there, so just some distinct areas provided by you via say rocks driftwood etc. placed in the middle and at both ends of the tank may be sufficient to allow for them to establish their territories, and defuse any drastic fighting, unless one ventures into someone elses hood.

Not a fan of man made fish so i cant comment

put a female in the tank

If you want a great lookin male add a female, one of the males will become dominant.

When you are trying to get a breeding pair of fish you buy at least 6, hoping at least one is a female and you get a breeding pair, which is the female and the most dominant male, then dispose of the rest, or move the remaining males into a different tank and another male will become dominant, etc. etc.

You will never get all dominant males in the same tank, no matter how many females you add.
