One or two, it's your choice. Just know that if you get a male & a female, they WILL produce eggs (the eggs won't hatch though) and Ive heard from others that the eggs are annoying to clean. If you're lucky you will get two males like me :) it's very difficult to tell their gender and it took me about a month to realize mine are both males xD

When it says they "cannot successfully reproduce in fresh water" it means you won't end up with babies. They make eggs no matter what water they're in but they only hatch when in brackish/salt water. :/

Well you won't have babies, you will have eggs that'll never hatch xD

Many of my scaly friends from my original tank from 2011 have passed, except for two! I am in the process of re-doing my tank. :)
