I Love my pair of Bolivians. They are curious and not shy at all in my opinion. My male is the dominant fish of the tank but he doesn't rule with a iron fist (or jaw). He actually nipped at me while doing a water change, this was just before breeding and I have photos and a video of the ritual.
Love my rams, they were one of the "must have" fish when we started our 55gal almost a year ago.
Have 4 boys - not on purpose, tried to pick 2 and 2 but evidently the LFS just had boys. They've grown up nicely, and for the most part get along ok. Definitely one is lowest on the totem pole, poorer colors than the others. Tank is fairly heavily planted tho, so they have places to avoid each other.
I have 4 bolivian rams, and 1 electric blue ram in my 40b. Planning on adding another electric blue. My electric blue seems to think hes a cory somtimes. Its funny to watch him scavange the bottom with the corys, lol. My bolivians were a little camera shy, but these are best pics I could get. Enjoy
I love Bolivians, I had 6 of them. They were given to my at the age of 2yrs. They never bothered anyone in the tank and just a few head buts btwn themselves. Hope the pictures went through. Everyone's pic's are so nice, really beautiful Bolivians.
I picked up 10 green neon tetra, 5 prestilla tetra. Those along with the 5 cherry barb, 5 sarpeas and 6 otto have really brought the females out. They are coming up to the glass and going for food at the middle. Sebastian still doesn't want any of it. Hes happy in his corner I guess. What's everyone's food of choice? Mine get daily flakes and an algae wafer broken up twice a week.
So I had to take more pictures, lol . These guys are friendly and curious. Every time I put my hand in the tank, or clean the substrate. There right there checking out whats going on. My bolivians let me pet them sometimes . My electric blue had to get up in the picture, lol. Enjoy
