Pair of German Blue Rams in a Heavily Planted bowl?

I currently have 3 pairs of GBR in my planted 75G. Was think of taking out a pair and placing the the two into a 2.5G heavily planted jar/bowl once I get the bowl/jar going. I'm planning to do a more natural approach to the 2.5G reliaing on the plants to do the filtering producing air. I KNOW IT'S NOT IDEAL AND CRUDE FOR MY GBR. BUT THEO WILL BE STRICTLY MONITORED AND IF THEY SEEM OUT OF COMFORT THEY'RE GOING RIGHT BACK INTO THE 75G. Just thought I'd ask to see if anyone has taken up on this challenge and had any success with it. Please let me know

They simply cannot live in that small of a space/gallonage. If you want to remove them either rehome them or cycle a 20g tank or larger for the pair... If it was a single fish you might be able to squeeze it into a 10g but not a pair.

Due to photobuckets new bs cost for use of images on forums I have deleted all photobucket accounts. I apologize if you enjoyed or found my photos helpful.

I've kept a breeding pair in a heavily planted and gently filtered 5 gallon. It was a bit small but they seemed ok since they were both mellow and devoted to each other.
I wound not go any smaller than that however.
