Yeah, my Bolivian is pretty hardy. I got lazy sometime last year in the 20 gal
. Didn't change the water (just added new water) and the nitrates shot up big time. Algae every where in a nonplanted tank. At one point I didn't think he/she (I never bothered to read up on how to sex these rams) wasn't going to make it. After learning my lesson, it's health rebounded big time. So no more lazy from me. Especially with this 2 month old 55 gal
. The Bolivian is a lot darker than when first brought home, but I think it's because of the punishment I put on it.
