5- female.
I think if you fatten up no 4, you could also have another female, but not sure.

Hi Laar

I am going to create a simple guide in this section of the forum, but I have explained in this post http://www.zebrapleco.com/forum/viewtop ... =12&t=5734 in a previous discussion.

Hope this helps.
