I would go 20 to 30 and that will give some space for breed.

I read on here somewhere from someone that 23 seemed to be the magic number. Sounded reasonable so when I get my Trophs that's what I'll shoot for.

Depending on filtration ofcourse, I used 75g to breed a ton of trophs and the biggest wild colony I liked in there was 30, you can keep 50 in there, but for breeding 20-30 is ideal.
