Had my juvie pair in a growout tank who was able to produce eggs and frys but sadly all the frys became snack for the parents. I'm going to see if they can get another set going so I can pull the frys out. Must've had about 40-50 frys too.

Today I received my very first GBR after much anticipation. I drop bits of water into his store bag bit by bit while acclimating him/her. Then I gently opened the bag thinking he'd swim out when he felt comfy. He went up and pecked my finger as I was opening the bag (love!) then I gave my rainbows a tubeflex cube while I waited and he zoomed out of the bag to eat. I was freaked out! He ate so fast worms were coming out of his gills and he was coughing water and gasping! Finally he did a backward sneezing and the worms dislodged and were then eaten again. Next he went straight over to the bubbles from our CO2 and played with them, biting the loose bubbles.

I already love this little guy way more than my other fish. Even my super colorful rainbows or my red platy named Cumberbatch.

I got my first GBR in my 30g for about a month now and he's one of my favorites! I'm wanting to get a Kribensis also but worried there's not enough space in a 30g? It's heavily planted and there's several hides to choose from.

I have a few and they breed a lot! I have 2 F1 from wild parents, and 3 locally bred. They are constantly breeding but the eggs never hatch. They always get eaten way too quickly by the parents.

I have 1GBR and 1Krib in a 20L. At first the GBR was very territorial and chased the krib everywheren but since then the two have apparently become friends. They follow each other all over the tank but I can't say you'll have the same luck as myself.

I had two kribs in the tank at one point and the one was very active and aggressive and the GBR wasn't allowing any of that nonsense. i had to seperate the aggressive krib and after that everything turned out ok.

I have four GBR in a 114 gallon tank, and three of them are fine, the other female is lackluster in color and always gets harassed.

They were sharing the tank with around fifty PFR cherries, which all got killed after my loveley, but clueless girl dumped in some algae fix. Grrr

I put a hundred more shrimp in two days ago, and they all seem to have been eaten by the four ratbags...

I've had these 2 for a little over a month now and they quickly became my favorite fish!!! My old favorite, a female Pearl Gourami does nothing but hide behind my camboba and touch pectoral fins with her "new boyfriend". She was always right front center in the tank but since I introduced her to a shy male, she has adapted his traits . However, since I added these GBR's I now have some personality back in my tank. They are such a fun fish to watch, and their beauty rivals just about any freshwater fish.

Are Rams diggers? I am really interested in getting a pair for my 20L but worried they will dig into the substrate.

Is it possible to tell the sex of these GBRs from this picture?
