    Raising ram fry in community tank?

    I have a pair of Bolivian rams that laid eggs last week for the first time in a month and I was pretty excited. The eggs disappeared a couple days ago and today I found where the wrigglers went. I know that I probably won’t have the best outcome with survival rate but I want to know if there’s a...

    Dark black Bolivian ram?

    I got 3 Bolivian rams a couple days ago, and they settled in decently, although it’s rather difficult to sex them. One particular ram looks to be the dominant one in the tank, and chases both of the others out of its territory. Tonight, however, I noticed it had gotten really dark. It darkened...

    29 Gallon Stocking Advice

    Hello all! While I'm not *exactly* new to the hobby, after doing a lot of reading I've discovered that I'm new to keeping fish correctly (as in, all those years I was keeping fish as a child, I was basically running to the pet store, thinking 'this is pretty,' and getting extremely lucky that...

    Valentine's Day Rams

    I was feeding the 90 gallon fish when I found that two of my bolivian rams had made a nest! I don't doubt that the eggs won't make it, but it was fascinating to watch their parenting. These guys are likely the best first time parents I've ever had. There wasn't any excessive aggression, or...

    Will My Planned Community Tank Work ?

    Hey, I have followed every guide to effectively fish-less cycle an aquarium I think exists on the interwebs, and am now about a week off from adding my fish (provided all goes to plan).  My current plan is to include into my heavily planted 25 gallon tank: 6 Zebra Danio, 8 Black Widow/Phantom...
