Is their a time limit on German Blue Rams b4 they kill each other?


I been having my GBR breeding for months now I just now got to the part where they stay this long alive. I notice as juveniles they are becoming more as$ hol3$ and fight each other. What should I do and can I sell them this young?

How large are the juveniles? It sounds like they are just starting to get territorial towards each other. If that's so, then you'd either need to spread them out to more tanks, put them in all in a larger tank, or sell some of them.

As they grow out in my nursery tank a dominant male will begin to reign holy hell on the others. I then call him " piss and vinegar"!! I then move him to the main tank where his parents give him a taste of his own medicine. I've had them start to pair off and lay eggs at that stage. Remember they only live ~3 years so they get mature at what seems to be a very early age.

About an inch, just over a week and two months
Old. It's hard since both my tanks have 3 different frys so theirs a range I don't see dead guys anymore ( on filters) they just wip or slap n scrape till one punks out. Just don't want to see them kill each other
