In the final planning stages for my new 20X20X20 heavily planted. I left the planted world to go with saltwater corals for several years but am returning to what I love the most.
My question is about Rams.....in the past I only stocked with one pair of Rams but I read on another board that they may be happier with 2 females and one male. I think that even if thats true, the size of my tank would just be too small for 3 Rams. They will be main inhabitants with just a couple of other small additions. So, what say you... 1 pair or 2 females and 1 male.
I bought a group of rams and let them pair off. Luckily, they all paired up so I didn't have to do any switching to prevent the non-pairs from getting beat up. But hydro is right, rams are monogamous so any extra females will be beat up by the pair that formed.
