My first Bolivian rams

Just picked these 2 up! I hope they are a pair, the lfs said he was pretty sure it was a male/female. I moved my 3 female gbr to the 55. They seem so delicate but I love them. I may still try and get a male one more time to try and breed them. I also picked up 2 otos. If I'm planning to breed the Bolivian rams, are the 2 otos okay in the tank with them? Thanks!

Cool fish, I like mine a lot. They were best pals for the first two weeks, now one seems to harass the hell out of the other. No signs of stress that I can see yet though. We will see what happens. Not sure on te breeding.

i have 2 Bolivian Rams, had them for about 3 months now. they are not a pair, though i do believe they are male/female. they are not enemies, but not friends either. usually see a little squabble around feeding time.
I have 2 otos in a 29g tank with mine(along with CPDs, Black skirts, 1 platy) and the otos are perfectly fine.

29g Planted, 10g Craytank, 5.5g

They keep puffing up and rubbing against each other occasionally.

Here is an updated photo. Still trying to sex them. They haven't gained any color at all, but they look happy and stay together all day while swimming.
