Males can be territorial. That is why broken lines of sight and plenty of room for more than one territory is important. In that tank you will be ok with 3 males. Maybe try and have some higher up plants for them to hide in as well. 3 males will be ok in 5 gallons. Females are very very drab.

I did and I told him based on personal experience and alot of research. Nowhere does it say they need a foot each. We are talking about dario dario correct? I have kept 4 males in a 26 bow and never saw any aggression.

I think if should find a seller first lol I'm gonna see if other people have bad success with all males in smaller tanks as I'd rather more vibrant fish. In the end hiding won't be a problem as I said before this tank is going to be infested with plants but in a good way lol
