German Blue Rams, absolutely love these little fish. I haven't bred any in about 8 years so I was totally unprepared for these little guys to get started so quickly. I only had them for about 2 weeks before they spawned, and usually the first spawn gets eaten, or abandoned.
I wasn't planning on breeding them at all, so I haven't really thought too much about the filter inlet. The flow is pretty gentle around the inlet though, as the surface skimmer is taking quite a bit.
This is just sort of a fun side project. If the babies live, cool. If they don't I won't be heartbroken. Its just fun watching them go through the motions.
If the babies can survive for over a week in this tank I might put in some serious effort in breeding them. I have a 14 Gallon I can set up as a rearing tank and I can track down some microworms, but for the time being I'm simply feeding them crushed New Life spectrum food with some additives, and crushed CyclopEeze
