My Ram and my Apisto agassizi were pretty cool with each other. They scuffled with each other a few times, but other than that, they were chilling out in my tank.

It's far more interesting to have a pair of rams than just one. They aren't nasty cichlids. Quite calm, unless you happen to get an annoying bugger. Kuhli loaches should be out, and that should be...

Dwarf cichlids can go for an extremely high price. Sturisoma twig catfish can be expensive as well. Altums and discus are always expensive. Some cory catfish can be expensive as well.

Swordtails may bother the shrimp. So may the dwarf cichlids. German blue rams and the checkerboard cichlids are real nice in my opinion. Checkerboards if you want peaceful inhabitants.

Should get a minimum of 5 schooling fish. They don't look good and become stressed when there are too few of them.

German Blue Rams, once established, can be real hardy. But the temperature was really low for them during that one week period. They may recover, but you'll have to do things slowly. Good luck!

I don't think there should be a betta. I think you're missing a focal point fish. You should consider getting like German Blue Rams or Apistos or something like that. You have a lot of fish groups...

The nano canisters don't have that good of a review, so I'm getting the Fluval C2 for the tank. I'm planning to get the Seachem Fluorite Black Sand for the substrate.

As for the Checkerboards...

Same as above, and the Rainbows do better in hard, alkaline water. Most of your fish love soft, acidic water.

If it has been setup for a year then it should be fine, unless some problem has occured in the tank. Perhaps too much toxic buildup? Old tank syndrome?

I've had this ten gallon for about 2 or 3 years now. I had to use this tank instead of my 29 gal because I recently moved to Cupertino from SD and the house is much smaller than my old home. So, I...

Dwarf cichlids such as rams are ok in a 5-10 gal tank as a pair. But if you want a harem of them, try checkerboard cichlids; they're much more peaceful.
