To be on the safe side, I wouldn't put more than two pair in a 4 foot tank, or maybe even just a trio(1 male, 2 females) with the odd breeding dither fish(guppy or similar live bearer) swimming about above them..
Just my opinion tho...

one male per 1.5 square feet of tank is the way to go, and up to 2 females per male. thats the way i do it

Excellent, i was just about to ask this myself. Thinking now my ideal setup will be 1 trio and a pair of BN's (or maybe 2 trios) a small shoal of neons or cardinals probably less than 20 and some freshwater shrimps (yet to be researched in detail) with plenty of caves, coconut shells driftwood and some carefull considered planting......................just wondering which bank to rob.................. seen a fluval roma 240 tank complete with external filter, lighting, free cabinet & extras for £ 311 which seems like a very tempting price. http://www.seapets.co.uk/products/aquarium-supplies/aquariums/fluval/fluval-roma-aquariums/fluval-roma-240-aquarium-and-free-cabinet-black-titanium-and-zebrano.html

Anyone had these tanks or equipment?
