    I've asked versions of this question elsewhere on the forum, but have not had much response.

    I'll be going to my LFS on Saturday to pick up some German Blue Rams for my 50g.

    The question is how many.

    They will all be males (no choice on that).

    I can get anywhere between 1 to 5 males. I'd like to get 3, but is this the best choice?

    I'd like to know if any of you have kept multiple male GBR togther before?

    I know there will be some aggression, but have you actually done it?

    I say at least 4 .
    3 leaves one being the weakest and most picked on by other 2 IMO.
    With 4 the 'aggression' is more spread out .
    5 would fine also IMO .
