    Picked up a pair of GBR's and was wondering if anyone else can confirm the sex of them. I did spend some time taking a look at both of them and think I have both a male and female. The supposed female holds the back of the tank and they both seem to get into a "fight" when they see each other...

    I'm finding this most peculiar, the male keeps moving eggs from the leaf litter to the sponge filter and the female keeps moving them back. They've been doing this most of the morning, moving them back and forth. Is this a harmless domestic disagreement or something more? It is day 3. Youtube...

    Recently I bought four german blue rams from my LFS, when I picked them up I bought a better heater and had done my research. I wasn't surprised when one of them contracted ich, i then proceeded to raise the temperature from 86 to 90 to help kill off the ich. I noticed while doing that, that one...

    It looks like I missed my chance to buy some rams from Yunite / germanbluerams.com sadly. I am wondering if anyone knows where else I could get some good quality GBR shipped or in the San Francisco Bay Area. Looking for a mated pair. No Asian imports. Cost not really an issue

    I've finally gotten some plants and driftwood set up in my 37g column tank. Its only been running for a week so to help with the cycling process I purchased 6 Zebra Danios. Originally I intended to stock the tank with 4-6 Marbled Hatchets, 12-14 Espei Rasboras, and a pair of GBRs. Note that I am...

    Hi, I'm new to this forum. I've had a few tanks in the past but nothing recently, so I've decided to put my old 37 gallon column tank to use. What I really want is to have a moderately planted natural looking setup with a pair/trio of German blue rams as the centerpiece fish with a school of...

    Hello all, I recently added four Corydora Julii to my planted aquarium. Ever since I added them my GBR has become very aggressive towards the Corys. Will this aggression subside over time? I have a 29 gallon tank that has a fair amount of plants. Will this be a longer term issue. So far the tank...

    My 29g dirt tank is really taking off and my GBRs have spawned. I had the tank at 82 and immediately moved the eggs to a 10g with half tap and half RODI with an air stone under the rock for circulation. I am currently adding 3ml of Hydrgoen peroxide every 12 hrs and have pulled 10-15 fungus eggs...

    Hey guys, so I am looking at getting 3 ram cichlids for my 29 gallon fish tank. I really like both the German Blues and the Electric Blues, so I was wondering if it would be possible to have 1 male GBR and 2 female EBR, or 1 male and 1 female GBR w/ 1 female EBR? Since I would only have 1...
