Never mind, I talked to some others about it. Thank you all for your advice! By all means, keep telling your stories about 'em.

If your worried about sensitivity try Bolivian rams like me, that is until your comfortable enough to go to GBR'S. Your call, but both are beautiful fish

My LFS carries GBRs, not Bolivians. They are 7 bucks a piece, but I have some gift cards, so no worries there.

There's another shop, Rift 2 Reef Aquatics that special orders just about anything. I'm gonna look up Bolivians.

Bolivians are a little more tolerable to water conditions so most fish hobbyists tend to go with them rather than GBR'S who are super sensitive. Best analogy I can think of is that's your tank is the kryptonite to their superman

At first i had considered Bolivian's also. I still would like to go there some day but I'm glad I've got what i have now. All 3 of my pairs spawn regularly tho none of them have reared the fry on their own so i intervene latley. All 6 are still young and I'm hoping in the future that will change.
