Blue eye fork tails settling in

Ive had by blue eye forktails for about 10 days now and I love them. They have colored up and are really beautiful and the males are stunning little guys when they display to each other over a female. They are very active rarely stopping small fish that seem to only feed from the top 2/3 of the tank. I had read that they are a shoaling fish but that hasnt been the case with mine. I have them in a heavily planted tank with cherry red and amano shrimp. They seem to totally ignore each other. I have 10 in a 29 gal tank and I may put 5 more in. I'm hoping to be surprised with some fry at some point but I am really happy with this choice and really pleased with the quality of fish received from the breeder.

Lol, ive tried but these guys dart around so much I haven't been able to get a good picture. I need something with a faster shutter speed than my phone camera.

here is a video of the little guys showing their stuff for the ladies. As rough as it looks they never touch each other. Lots of show but no bite.
