They are a gregarious fish. I would not do one for any length of time.

They will fight a little, male-female, male-male, female-female. I call it a pillow fight. In the end they are Cichlids and will establish a hierarchy.

I feed mine mostly a pellet from kens fish. Earthworm sticks and black worms are favorites. In the beginning I feed the hikari vege rounds. They like those too. Enjoy this fish. Subtle beauty!

Thanks, I definitely don't want to keep just 1 then. I was more so worried about them picking on the kuhlis but it seems they shouldn't. As long as the fighting is between them. I was wondering what kind of food they liked; I have bug bites, omega one veggie rounds, frozen brine and bloodworms. Might pick up another dry food.

You will love how they beg for blood worms! Flakes have never worked well for me and my Rams

I ďthinkĒ the loaches will be fine. They generally are more nocturnal. Coryís are ok unless you want to breed

So I still have my heart set on the rams but as a backup is there anything else I could stock in the tank instead of them?

I think there's Apisto Cacatuoides but only males.

I just got two adolescent Bolivian rams for my 20 long a couple weeks ago.

Good luck! So far I've found them to be a little more intolerant of the higher PH's than some people report.
I have two tanks where all the fish and plants do well, but I must have a rock, or substrate that adds something to the water increasing the PH and hardness in one tank and I struggled with the rams in that tank not having appetite and sadly not making it whereas the two in my other tank where the PH is just slightly acidic have really thrived.

They are lovely fish.
I'm in the process of rescaping my hard/high ph tank so that I get the same slightly acidic water result so that I can put a pair in there again.
