i personally would use Gravel sand gets dirty really quickly and also Gas can build up under the sand and cause problems, i would have a trio in there then there is plenty of room for all the fry Laughing

I'll second that, 2 males and 6 females would leave a better piece of room for the fry and the adults.

sorry mate but thats even worse.
you are asking for trouble with the males fighting. you will get better results with 2 males and from time to time this will even cause you problems.
