    Issues sexing German Blue Rams

    Hey everyone, Just wondering if I can get some help sexing my 2 new rams. I’ve been looking up online how to sex them but one of them I am stuggling with.

    Adding Rams with Discus

    I have a discus about 4" wide and I purchased a bunch of Ram cichlids to go into the aquarium. They are still in the quarantine tank but are almost ready to add to the bigger aquarium. My only worry is the size of the rams. They are maybe an inch long including tail. Are they too small at...

    Do rams horn snails and trumpet snails escape?

    Hi Thanks for the response before re plant cleaning, I am curious about the use of the rams horn and Malaysian trumpet snails as a clean up crew in an aquarium with shrimp. Do you think these would escape? I have bottle aquariums where the snails have rarely ever gone above the water level. Do...

    New tank, what to stock with rams?

    I’ve decided to go back to fish keeping after selling my 4 tanks two years ago. So I’ve just bought a new 160L tank (haven’t picked it up yet so don’t know the parameters or make/model but have been told it’s more than 1meter wide) and I’ve got a list of the fish I would like but need advice...

    Stocking 30 gallon tropical

    I currently have 3 corydoras, a dwarf gourami, and a ctenopoma. They all get along fine so far. We are hoping to get some larger fish because our ctenopoma can get up to 6 in and will eat whatever fits in their mouth. I was thinking an angelfish and maybe a gourami or a few rams (ones that...

    Angelfish And Rams?

    Hi! So, I just had a quick question...In general, can angelfish and rams live together, or are they too aggressive? Also, how many of each would you recommend in a 60 gallon long tank? I already have 1 angel, 3 adult platies and 2 babies, 5 runnynose tetras and 4 clown loaches. Thanks in advance...

    Survival Of Eggs

    This is a quick snap of my Ramirezi not 12 months old yet. First brood seems to be a good pair, what's the chance of them not eating the eggs? Sorry about quality I must get more practice!

    Ideal Setup For Ram Cichlids?

    I recently acquired a 90L tank from a friend (I think 24 gallons, approx? Sorry, I'm Australian so I'm not great at the conversions from metric). I had kept a pair of German Ram Cichlids in the past in my 200L community tank but it was a struggle looking after them in there because the water was...

    Tough Little Rams

    So when I was researching blue rams before I picked up my first pair about a year ago, I read they were sensitive, skittish, and easily bullied. All in all a frail delicate fish. After breeding them in a 10 gallon, I decided to try some out as members of a 50 gallon community.   They were the...

    Dwarf Cichlids And Friends :)

    Hello cichlid fans,   I made a fairly general "help me compile a stocking list" thread over in the Tropical Discussion forums a few days ago; to summarise, I like characterful individual fish while the OH wants a fairly traditional community.  We're looking at getting a Trigon 190 for the living...
