After having kept these a number of times, and knowing the intraspecies aggression, IMO you need to keep as many as possible because they tend to kill each other quickly, especially if housed in a medium to small grow out tank.

I started growing them out in a 55 and noticed high aggression right away so they were moved to a six foot tank, and even in that size tank, I ended up with two.

The two were moved to a 500 gal kiddy pool, where even in that footprint, soon ended up as only one.
