Rams are AWESOME and have great personalities. I'd say totally.

Bshananigans-- that is a gorgeous boy!


My recent order turned out to be all female (I'm sure purposely) so I ordered 4 males from a different seller so I could try to get a pairing or two.

You got yours from Joe right? That's where mine are from but I lost two others while acclimating. I would only get two males or even one because not all four will find a pair and there will be chasing and eventual stress induced deaths

My male ram fully colored up for the first time in seemingly forever. Everytime I tried to take a pic he would turn. By the time I got one he was back to how slightly washed out colors.

I got the original 4 females from Joe, they are gorgeous, but he wasn't the best person to deal with and so I went with (I believe) mflash980 this time for the 4 males. They should be here tomorrow. I don't plan on keeping all 4, I plan on having 2 pair (hopefully) in 2 seperate tanks, I just want the best chance of getting 2 pairs..as soon as I see too much aggression and/or pairing up to begin they will get seperated and the extra 4 will be rehomed. I already have a couple of friends interested. No worries! I don't know a ton about cichlids but I think I have all the bases covered and am being cautious about everythig I'm doing for them to give them the best possible lives.

Oh that's good 😀 sucks seeing rams die they look so helpless when they are on their way out. Hope the pairing pans out. Wish mine would lay eggs she looks pretty robust but when my male sees her he just follows or chases they don't seem perfectly paired yet

I understand, I hate seeing sick/overly stressed fish as well. It's a shame that some people don't know any better/don't care.

Goodluck on your pairing!! Fingers crossed for you!
