Another Male? Or a few females?

Im rather excited, my husband has agreed to let me set up yet another tank! My initial plan was a little girl I had seen plus the tank is big enough that I could add another female at a later date if I wished but ive also seem some new stunning males and now im Torn!

Another male? Or a girl with the possibility of another girl sometime in the future?

Well if you want to house females together- I believe the recommended size is a 10 gal. You need at least 4+ females, otherwise they will pick on each other. And sometimes those setups don't even work. Females can be just aggressive as males.

Just because I don't type with candy and rainbows doesn't mean I'm being mean.

Very true.
