Well, They sure seem to have adjusted quickly to my tank. I was just putting some freeze-dried tubifex in there, and they started eating it right out of my hand, literally. I was putting in pinches and squzzing it to re-hydrate it, and up they come, pulling bits right out from between my fingers!

However, there seems to be a good bit of chasing, flaring, and even some biting, though no wounds or ragged fins.
Are they just working out a pecking order?
anything I should be concerned about?

*giggle* Brazen lil buggers aren't they? My Bolivians are stalking the angelfish fry in the tank. I know I should feel bad but...its pretty funny *grin*

Mine are forever chasing each other around the tank and nipping; atm yours are probably setting up territories. Sounds like theres a good chance you've at least once pair in there since they're so serious about it! And despite all the aggression, I have yet to see a split fin or any wounds in my tank.

yeah, mine do the same thing. constantly. i don't worry unless one is looking harasses. like the other day, one of my females wasn't looking her best, so i moved her to the other tank and she colored up right away. mostly, they're just obnoxious little buggers to each other.
That'll do pig, that'll do

I have two rams, slightly over an inch long. They have been in a community tank for a year now. They are great fun to watch with their tiny mouths and funny "mohawks". I believe I have two males and would love to get more, but I have not seen this type of ram at the LFS.
