Had a dream last night and 2 things happened:
A. That my male Bolivian ram died.
B. I found Bolivian ram fry in my 29.

I'll be doing a pwc on both tanks later and my ram is still alive this morning. Haven't found any fry though lol.

Water changes on the 29g and my 10g QT. Ich treatment is going well in the main tank, spots are all gone, just keeping up the heat to make sure it's all dead. Will be getting either some cardinal or neon tetras and a few otos and tossing them into QT in the next week or so.

Do you have softer water under 7 or over 7? I love the Cardinals!!! but better in stable, established tank right around or under 7pH. See if you can locate tank raised ones, they tend to do better, survive, eat, transition better than the wild caught ones. Quarantine is a smart way to do it!

I'm not sure what the hardness of my water is - I just ordered test kits for hardness and phosphates to monitor levels, having just moved into the realm of high tech planted tanks, but from what i've read rummynose are just as sensitive as cardinals, so I'm guessing my water can't be too hard.

Lost one of my two blue rams tonight. The other one disappeared this past week. I was out of town all week. Also lost my gold mystery email today, it was in a different tank.

So sorry to hear about your little guys. Did you figure out what happened. It is sad, and frustrating when there isn't anything you can do, like when you are out of town.
