I was really just curious and wondering how successful other people have been if they tried. I dont think I will now, instead go for a sorority or import a centerpiece male in the future. :)

Ok, good. And just to be clear, you mean keeping the male separate from the girls, right? Because putting him with females is another terrible idea.

Haa yes. I wish I could though! I love both, yet room is limited and I dont like the look of divided tanks.

Visually just...unappealing? Hard to say, from photos I've seen, it just looks very shoddy and jarring, as opposed to one whole landscape that fish can swim from end to end.

otoh, something like http://media.photobucket.com/image/r...b/PA190689.jpg looks nice! Its even and clean. compared to something like http://images.yuku.com.s3.amazonaws....c8921b49e.pjpg which I don't like the look of. I personally dont think I can pull it off and make it look 'nice'

My goal is more of plants everywhere! http://www.aquaticplantcentral.com/f...p?imageid=5239 A divider will throw the look off, unless there are some good ones to get inspirations from?

I dont like the look of divided tanks either. I had 2 and only liked the look of one. One had an asian theme and th eother was a bunch of random decorations thrown in the tank

Two mellow male can be kept together.
With a open tank.
Other then that then no.
Some sibling can be kept also.
But you can't change anything in the tank.

No. Even if the males were mellow, they're still likely to fight because it is INSTILLED IN THEM.

I've second that.
Mellow male won't fight.
Plus no plant or decoration inside of the tank.
So The male won't establish a turf.
The most male I've ever kept together was 6 from different Bloodline.
One alpha and 5 that lost the will to fight.

That sounds to me like 5 males who are far too stressed to fight due to having no cover and being constantly exposed to other aggressive fish. That sounds like a very cruel way to keep them.
