GBRs cannot live in a 20g high because they do not have enough space to establish a territorie without the other fish being in it all the time.
Now alone they would be ok with 3-4 other fish but not with 15

Didn't think I would be able to get the rams. Of course would be better off then the ones I saw at the chain lfs I went to today. Saw one dead on the bottom and like three others barely moving with no color at all.

Since to rams any suggestions to go along with my planned stock of 6 rasboras. 4 Cory's and a dwarf gourami

Let me guess... Petsmart. (No offense to anyone who works there i have just noticed they have a couple of dead fish once in a while.)

There's no problem with a ram in a 20 gallon high. I have a bolivian ram in my 20H, with no problems so far. Plus, it will be planted. I don't see why not...

Also, where in NC are you? I live in Cary!

No rams in a 20 high, it'll go mad after 2-3 months of not having room and will swim up to find territory, being mean to other tank mates

That's funny, because I've had my ram for three months now. Have you ever had one?

You can keep a single ram in a 20g with no prob as long as there are no other bottom area dwellers.

Yep, it should be fine if there nothing else on the bottom. The footprint should support it

A pair of rams will do just fine in a 20 high.
