    Are Borellii or Hongsloi harem breeders? Or just pair only?

    your going to tend to get a loner that gets picked on if you do harem. stick with just pairs.

    Both are harem breeders, females only get picked on when they aren't ready to breed. You have to have separate territories for the females, but the male will cover up to three female territories. each female needs about a 10 inch diameter around her cave.

    Thanks, found my male Hongsloi dead a day or so ago and was thinking just to order another pair and a another female Borellii at the same time.
