I came home from a 4H workshop yesterday to find my little pair of Petsmart Rams had spawned on the driftwood! Only two of the eggs have turned white so far, and they are doing an amazing job of not eating the eggs and guarding the eggs and keeping the area cleaned up.
Even if this spawn isn't successful, I know there are lots more to come!
Since I know I have a mated pair, I am thinking of setting up their own 15 or 10 gallon tank with lots of plants so they can spawn and raise fry in piece. My LFS would take them because every time they import Rams, they never make it. She said if anyone bred Rams locally, she would take them. So I won't have 100 tank filled with rams
I'll keep you guys updated, hopefully I'll get a few fry!!
Where in Washington state do you live I also have a pair of blue's that spawned but alas they ate the eggs, hoping to get another successful spawn. I have not talked to my local Pet Smart but I also hope to sell the some later on.
I used to keep an open mind but my brains kept falling out.
I am so excited Now I know I need to put up another tank for them to breed in Thinking a 20L with a small school of hatchet fish and a few Oto's. Those fish should be easy to chase away.
I Picked out some good fishy parents! lol
