Thank you everyone for the positive comments!

This past weekend I added a trio of otos, a pair of rams (M. Ramirezi) and a pair of Bolivian rams (M. Altispinosa).

Tons of personality. Really fun to watch.

I realize only one of the pairs will be able to occupy the tank long term.

Will post pictures soon!

Hi Jonnywhoop. Here is a full tank shot from a few weeks ago. I really wish I had topped off the tank before taking the picture! LOL. Now that I have this journal going, I'll be sure to take better pictures

Added some fish! Here's a pic of a really cool male Bolivian Ram (M. Altispinosa) and also a pic of a Blue Ram (M. Ramirezi). The Bolivian Rams seem to be a lot more shy than the M. Ramirezi. It's a treat to see them out in the open.

If any of you out there keep Bolivian Rams, I would love to see a picture or two. Would love to see a mature fish if possible. (Mine are young). This is the first time I've owned this fish in all my years of fish keeping and I really like this fish. Thanks!

I'm not entirely sure how old this guy is, I just got about 27 hours ago. He was being harassed by other rams in my buddies tank, so we moved him to mine. After about an hour he got comfortable and started moving around. Today he looks way better and goes all over the tank. I consider his personality a giant goof. He loves eating my sand and spitting it out all over the place.

Here are a few pictures taken this evening. Plants are starting to grow (and a little bit of hair algae too). Recently turned up the CO2 to 2-3 bps. Doing small water changes (5-10%) every 3 days or so.

Hey AZfishkid, I mean, Centromochlus! I've read so many of your posts over the years . Yes, thanks, l love the rocks too. As far as the location, I wish I could be specific; and as I said, I'm just "borrowing" these .
