Are you after an all male tank?
In my six foot, I have about 15 fish total, but do not like to be overstocked. You could fit a lot more in, about 30 depending on species and filtration.
Go for male fish that don't look similar and if you want to have females remember that cross breeding is rife with peacocks as females look similar.
I would go for a mix of haps and peacocks. See what is available in your area and make a list. From there we can advise a little better [emoji106]
Life is all about options, as long as you have something to look forward to, there is no reason to look back...now where can I put the next tank?

Check out a few of the online fish stores to get some ideas. I have an all male 75G with 10 Peacocks....they have their arguments but always work out the pecking order....the only issue is if you by juveniles, it's a crap shoot trying to get all males...I know this from experience, but I just traded them in at my LFS...

PEACOCKS RULE !!!! :rockon: :thumbup
