I haven't had any problems with him, but he's about to get a tank of his own anyway. I started setting up a 10g dirted/planted tank last night just for him and a few snails.

Anyway, here are some pictures, taken with an Olympus OM-D, with a 12-50mm f/3.5-6.3, and an old vintage OM 50mm f/1.4 from the 70's.

Also there are many cichlids (Rams, angels) that make good community residents but unlike most cichlids (tough!) Rams should only be added to established and stable systems.

|xmt||To update the status of my gbr/gourami aggro, it's now under control. I rearranged a few rocks/caves/plants in my tank, and my gourami is back to his normal chilled out self again. My gbr's have colored up nicely, and they like to explore. I think they're going to be keepers after all.|

|xmt||Thanks for the welcome . It definitely doesn't look understocked, but then again it doesn't appear to be overstocked either. Everyone seems to have found their place in the tank, and look like they're doing well. My adf also looks happy with his new tank mates. That said, I plan on buying a 20L soon, and I'll probably be moving a few of the inhabitants of this tank over to that one.|

I should be cycling my tank soon, I'd be interested in taking those Blue Rams off your hands if you are thinking about keeping the Gourami. If not what's the name of the LFS that has them? I was going to order mine online, but Daytona isn't that far (i'm in Orlando).

it's always good to see a newbie from Florida pop up. I would definitely hold of on any and all stocking any further (if anything, try to slim the population just a bit, it seems like a lot of fish for 25g) an "understocked" tank is a happy tank
Another thing you'll notice is for the most part the Florida chapter of the planted tank is a little slow, but we do have a Facebook group that is a little more current
definitely get some pictures up, we love seeing new tanks!

Thanks. It's been up and running for about 45 days now. I was told that the German Blue Rams were ok to put in community tanks, and that they were generally peaceful. I had a 55g cichlid tank nearly a decade ago, but I don't remember ever having a GBR, so I wasn't sure about them, and had a gullible moment there in the lfs. I'll remember to do more research prior to buying next time.
On a side note, my Gourami seems to have calmed down considerably in the last 8 hours, and my rams are coloring up again. I hope it lasts.

|Borikuan||Welcome back. How long has this tank been up and running? Resistance the urge to get any more fish until you have cycled the tank properly and try do some research before stocking with non community fish. Cichlids should be on a tank of their own. Some sellers are in it for the money, take all advice with a grain of salt.|
