Two German Blue Rams Journal
Hello, I just joined. I wanted to find a site where I could progress on a journal of two blue rams I bought recently just yesterday.

After looking at them closely today, I realized one is a girl and the other is a boy. The boy is a bit more smaller than the female, who is two times bigger. I fed them twice today with a fair good amount- They share a 29g with two pictus cat fish, a bumblebee catfish(not Asian kind), and a red tailed shark who I have decided to separate from them. I want to gradually increase the feeding to threex a day to make them happier and hopefully boost their survival.

My tank has a temp of about closely 83-84 degrees F. I use purified water for it instead of our harsher tap. They're still getting used to the fast moving water in my tank, but I hope they can adjust within the next day or so. Most my other fish I've had had adapted decently to it and no longer have trouble. I know the rams are different though, and a lot more delicate.

Even so, any advice would be appreciated from people who have experience.

I would take out the two pictus cat fish, a bumblebee catfish(not Asian kind), and a red tailed shark... If they breed they eggs want make it..

Thank you, I do realize that(currently trying to locate a tank for them), but I've noticed the smaller male has been picking and antagonizing the bigger female. Is there a reason why?
