german blue ram

    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...

    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

    Thing over a Venezuela/Orinoco River basin biotope in my 75 gallon. I'm looking for some plant & hardscape recommendations along with a stocking review. Substrate will be a light brown sand covered with oak leaves for tannis and litter cover. For Hardscape I was thinking spiderwood roots. I...

    My 15 has been cycling for a few weeks now. Water parameters look good, and I used filter media from my already-cycled tank. I plan to run the marineland penguin 150b in there, with 1 peppered Cory (it's what I already have), 3 panda corys, 2 rams, and 10 neons. According to the aqadvisor thing...

    Hi guys, I just recently started getting back into real plants (I've had my tank established for 4 years). I previously failed because I didn't have the right lighting on my aquarium. Anyways-- I added a dose of co2 yesterday (Flourish) and I noticed today my German Blue Ram hasn't been moving...

    I bought 2 German blues about a 5 days ago. Beautiful fish that have acclimated to the tank and tankmates wonderfully! But I've noticed the female's black coloration will become pale at times and return to normal at others, sometimes quick enough for me to see the change. she's eating fine (mix...

    Hello all! So I have a male and female ram in my 15G heavily planted with stones driftwood etc. Now these two have never been in a fight and have always been two peas in a pod always swimming together. A couple months ago the females spawning tube was out, and she was cleaning a rock as the male...

    Does anyone think its possible to house a pair of GBR in a Mr. Aqua 12 gallon long? I know a 12 Gal Cube wouldnt work but with the extra swimming room I would think it would improve the chances.

    Hi, I just purchased two juvenile German Blue Rams from my LFS and was told I was receiving a male and female pair. The staff member identified my 'male' from it's brighter colours, however having a pinkish stomach I believe they may have made a mistake. Could someone please try to identify...

    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...

    Here's all the information I can give you: Two-ish weeks ago, we noticed him rubbing himself (I think it's called flashing). We didn't think much of it at the time. Last week, while feeding them, our horrid silver molly was excessively aggressive, fighting and nipping anyone who came close to...

    I have 2 female German Blue Rams, one male. Over the past month or two one of the females seems to have paired with the male. The other female was being picked on and eventually seemed to develop a swim bladder problem. In this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lMQbbD2jlH4 you can see the...

    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...

    I know this is a bit late but anyways... I bought an Electric Blue Ram from the LFS on the 5th of December. I drip- acclimated it for an hour and released it. For the first five days, it was eating and acting normal, but afterwards something happened. Its fins are clamped, hides most of the time...

    If I were to have a pair (or pairs? lets stick with just one) of Electric Blue Rams breed and produce successful fry, how practical is it to keep the fry growing up with the parents. Would I have to remove the fry to a separate tank and keep them separated? Couldn't I have the original adults...
