Bolivian Rams ....

So the other day i actually found 3 for a decent price and they looked good so i swooped em up and have been doing good so far .... i went in wanting to get 2 males and 1 female. But now i see i may have 3 males because they tend to each stick to a third of the tank and if one of sees another they sort of like kiss fight. I was able to get some pics of 2 of em but they arnt too great buy enjoy ... any advice on keeping them is welcome also

You're in luck. I just uploaded a profile of them recently.

Pretty cool......

Hope they do well. You never know, you might have a female in there. But wyou won't know til they mature and start breeding. Mine acted the same when young, but then as they matured, the 2 males got bigger, and the female stayed a little smaller.

Not too sure. With Bolivians, it's very hard to sex, if at all possible, before they mature and start spawning.
