I dont remember if I said this or not in my last post, but I will need help sexing them if they are even sexable sized when I recieve them. Seller said they were "Medium" but I didn't get an actual size. All he said was to keep them in a breeder net for a while.....That sounds kind of wrong right? I have a 10 gallon opened up for them that I'd rather put them in, but if it's really better for them to be in a small space like that after shipping I can do the breeder net thing.
I personally don't trust the seller at all, he keeps all his rams in 10 gallon tanks, 25+ in each tank...he feeds frozen beefheart and baby brine (I heard beefheart isn't healthy for fish, and baby brine is, but shouldn't they be a bit big for BBS?), and he doesn't know what other types of food I would be safe using. I asked about using frozen adult brine and all he said was "i dont know, you'll have to try it and see" -- I wish I would have talked to the seller more in depth before I bid and paid....

Anyways, I'll probably be needing a lot of questions answered so please keep an eye out for a thread or two...

I agree with the breeder net scenario, joe told me the same thing. I put all four in my 40 community and two died to natural and territorial issues. Right now I have a nice pair thriving. I feed mine bloodworms and they are doing great I've heard bad things about beef heart as well. Just acclimate properly and have PLENTY of hiding places to reduce stress. They will probably be about 1.5-2 inches long when you get em and very grey. Mine took about a week or two to color out nicely

This electric blue ram was awesome. Sadly it died within 48 hours in my tank. That was also the priciest fish I've ever bought-- $25!

I'm looking at getting some GBR, but I'm going to wait a bit. My LFS gets new ones in all the time.

Wow! 25+ in a 10 gallon? I see why you would find that sketchy. Idk about beef heart for rams, but I know a lot of people suggest it for Discus.
