    Hi guys, I am looking for help in sexing the Bolivian rams, which i'd believe are a male and a female. The "male" is larger, has brighter colors and longer tail fins, compared to the "female". However looking at the vents (?) they both look about the same to me, and I wonder if I actually...

    My single male Bolivian ram has recently begun acting very aggressive in nature and is constantly displaying its stress bars. It constantly guards an area of the tank, chasing all fish away. It even bit my finger while I was attempting to aquascape! I tried shooing it away but it didn't swim...

    Having a problem with my Bolivian rams. Lately the male has been hiding (because he was being picked on), but now both rams are laying on the bottom of the tank (they are still upright, not on their sides). When the corys bonk into them, they don't even move. When they swim, it looks very jerky...

Victim was quite a bit larger than Bully at time of purchase, and I am 99% sure is male (3rd dorsal ray extended, tail fin extended, reproductive...

    Hello, I have a 55g planted tank with 2 giant danios, 2 white skirt tetras, 2 neon tetras, and 2 panda corries. A hobbyist in my area just bred Bolivian Rams and he offered me 6. Would this overstock the tank? Thank you.

    My female bolivian ram has been apparently sick for the last 5 days or so. She sits on the bottom of the tank at a 45 degree angle (pointing upwards). She will hardly eat too, taking the whole night to eat half a flake. I've put her in a smaller breeding tank within the tank to allow her to...

    Just wondering if anyone has tried this and the results. My bolivians dont bother my rosy barbs (hoping my buddy will take them or I can find someone RAOK that wants them not going to get the cardinals if I cant) but they are about the same size. Just wondering if this will work.

    I have been on a search for Bolivian Rams in the southern California area and I have had absolutely no luck. It seems like every store I have called or went to has been sold out of them. Has anyone seem them in stock at any LFS recently? I live in Riverside, but I am always looking for an...
