They are very peaceful Barbs ... they don't bother anyone. I've read other threads on other sites and have YET to see someone negatively comment on them. Since Denisons are shoaling fish, you'd probably want to start with 3?
I started with one ... but since It was in a tank with other Barbs it never acted out badly(fin-nipping, bullying etc), and was never bothered by the others. The larger the shoal the more natural their behavior ... but LOL ... my three seem to act pretty natural ... they love chasing and picking (playfully) on each other from time to time.
