German blue rams

Hello I have a 55 gallon with some discus fish and neons and rasboras with thre rams, the thing is one of my rams is terrorizing the tank, he even picks on the discus. I had to remove him to a 10 gallon tank, cuz I don't want to create stress on the other fish, now my question is how many rams should keep to reduce aggressiveness? Thanks

One trick I would use with an aggressive cichlid is to remove him from the tank, do a good sized partial water change and rearrange the tank. Afterwards reintroduce him back into the tank.

By doing all that you will break up any territories he may have established and fool him into thinking he is in a new environment.

Good luck
