You could keep two in a ten gallon. How are your other fish doing? Has your dad been better with you and your fish?

Keyholes are very nice, smallish, peaceful cichlids. I would be thrilled to find them here.

I'm going to have to be the stick in the mud and say a 10 gallon tank isn't large enough to house more than one keyhole. If you're planning on going with a pair, you'll need to upgrade to a 20 gallon system.
