    I actually thought I have updated this thread with the outcome. Got the fish in the new tank and I am beyond excited at the outcome.

    Aggression has been an issue because of them establishing territories but seems to have calmed down now.

    Thanks @MariaS I think the Hikari really brings out their colours well. Finally found a spirulina based food as well which I guess will only help intensify their colours once added to their diet

    I also think the lighting has something to do with it.

    They're a little brighter than it was earlier but buy older tank was brighter than this. The T5s tho added a natural look
