Default terribilis group size

I am just curious what number of animals do most people have as groups of terribilis? And what size tanks do you keep them in? I am breeding them I wanted to compare notes.

I have bicolors, which are similar, in a 36-gallon bowfront. I've had as many as 1.4 in there at once, but after about 6 years, there are only 1.2 left. I did notice some subtle bullying, which might have caused the loss of two females.

I have 2.1 Mints in a 18x18x24. Seems to be a long term sustainable situation. They will breed for me whenever I put a hut in. I don't usually have the hut in because they could quickly overwhelm me with eggs/tads.

4 mints, 4 oranges, 3 yellows. mints and oranges in exos 36x18x18 oranges in 24x18x18.

Mints breed like crazy, oranges not so much. Nothing from yellows, but just got them a few months ago.

I had 5 orange in a 40b. They did great, but damn they breed an insane amount. I ended up setting up a 40b for the growouts. The Orange are not as big as tincs like citronella etc though
