Endlers Livebearers!

Hello all, in 1.5-2 months, I'm going to have an open 5 gallon. I was considering having 2 Male Endler's Livebearers in there. Can I keep males together? Any specific information I should know? Thanks!

Five gallons is really too small for them. They need more room then that. They're very active swimmers.

I'm only repeating what I've read and what I experience with my boys. :) Others may have differing opinions.

Thanks for your help. I know this may be really stupid, but could I possibly put one in there? I'm sorry if it's stupid, I really like them.....

Diablo, if you like them so much, why not have them in the 29? :D

Because I think the Danios might hurt them @-@ they're really tiny, males get like 1 inch long,

Ooh.. Than better not. O.o Although I've never heard of danios being aggressive.

Everyone who is a danio? You don't have anything else in there yet do you? :/ Hmm I can't say then, all fish are different and you would know better since they're your fish XD
