This is also a petshop display and not a long term place for them to live. These ARE NOT my personal animals.

I was not picking on you. Neither was Jmorris. We just wanted to note a reminder to the general populi of the importance of population control, over crowding, stress, etc.

This pet shop has what appears to be decent enclosures, but they're setting a bad example with their population choices. Males should never be housed together, and cage size and plant numbers often do little in the way of eliminated the stress brought about by dominance. We just wanted to make sure people understood this before they saw the pic and decided to duplicate it impulsively.
