Discovered i have 2 males.

Last night I really studied my Bolivian rams. I am 99% sure that they are both male. The first 3 spines of the dorsal fin are black. Also, both tails have trailers. The bigger ram has longer trailers, the smaller one has short trailers, but they are visible. I have not seen any lip locking between the two, just minor chasing. They are in a 29 gallon with lines of sight broken up.

As long as there is no physical damage and the weaker fish is allowed to eat and is eating then there's no real worry. If its to the point where one fish pins the other to a specific location or doesn't allow the the food then action must be taken. Mikrogeophagus altispinosus are down on the extremely low side of the aggression scale so with proper tank arrangement it should be fine.

Thanks, it hasn't gotten to 'code red' yet. The only other tank I have is a 10 gallon if they would need to be separated. But this tank is too small. If it comes down to it, I could always post an ad on here to sell one.
