15-20 then thin out the most aggressive if they cause problems. you need to have very good filtration. I use an Ehiem 2215 and an aqua clear 110. You will get a lot of fry once the fish mature. if you keep just one type of mbuna you can sell the fry. if you keep a mixed tank leave the fry in the tank and most will disappear. do not sell or give away mixed bloodline fry.
