How do I tell the difference? Should I acclimate them like normal fish?

Are they really that hard to keep alive? I don't want to have a beautiful fish like that die in my aquarium.

Sweet. I am now definitely getting a ram or two for my 20 long as soon as I get one. Unfortunately one of my big egg laying Julii females passed away last night from the "whirling disease". I am real sad. I got to really love these fish. Anyway, thanks for all your help. Should I get sand, and do they like mossy plants, and anubias and stuff like that?

10% chance of success with gbr in a new tank.. you'd be best to wait 5 months but I doubt you will.

Brookster, I hope you realize that I'm not one of those people that goes out and buys fish that won't work for me. You are saying real **** about me not waiting, because I wouldn't do that to the fish. If you guys don't think it's a good idea, just go ahead and say so. I just take the advice of what y'all are telling me. So of course I would wait 5 months or however an experienced GBR keeper would say.
