I agree with you there. I was going to comment after I counted how many girls there were.

I also agree that is far too small. 11 fish is way too many in a 5 gallon tank, they should be in at least 15 gallons. And to have 2 males in 1 tank that isn't divided is a really really bad idea. I lost 3 males when a divider slipped once, just from ONE male being aggresive. He killed himself and 2 others.

Yes, you are right but i dont have more space in my room or in any other room for an extra tank. I'm aware that the female will be chasing and biting after each other but it does not really bother me. It's their nature if they are like this.
I have done it before and they look just fine.
