Hi Everyone! We recently bought home 4 juvenile red devils (they're about an inch and a half long) and set them up in our 55 gal bowfront. We are in the process of setting up a 125, which will be their new home once it's completed. We are hoping that two will pair off and we will return the other two back to the shop, ending up with a mated pair. Since we have never owned more than one red devil at a time, what are the signs that two might be pairing up?
With the exception of one little outgoing fellow, we haven't seen much of them yet, but it's only been two days.
We have owned red devils in the past and they have become, by far, our favorite fish. However, we have never started out with any so young or tried having more than one in the tank. Any advice we could get would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much!

Indiana, right next to that big cornfield...
We just became the proud parents of 4 juvenile Red Devils. They are about an inch and a half long, and I believe we have three males and female. The plan was to get several, in hopes of getting a mated pair, and selling the leftover fish back to shop. We have a 55 gallon bowfront, but we are getting a 125 soon that will be ready long before they outgrow this tank. <br />As for getting a mated pair, I think I already may be scrapping that idea, as one little fella has caught my eye. He is by far the most inquisitive and bravest of the group. While the others hide in the rock log, he boldly explores the tank and doesn't bother to take cover when we walk in the room. I think we just may have to keep him instead.
