Sweet!! It looks great. Is it a male/female pair? If so, maybe you'll get eggs like I did.

Nice. Let us know how they do in the 10g. Tank looks lovely as do the fish.

Tad off-topic but how much light do you have?

1.5 wpg (15 watt light on 10 gal)

rams are doing great today, great color, active and they are eating!!!

right now they are onlyu about 1/2 inch i hope to grow them out in the 10 gal and then transfer them to my (soon to come) 90 gal planted tank in a few months!

You're rams look great! Hopefully one's a male and the other a female.

Going off topic, is that brown algae on your fan wort?

you know i'm, not sure. i have 5-6 other stocks in my 28 that look great, this one just would not stay rooted, so i moved it to the ten to give the rams a little more cover...
