Soo I was prowling my LFS store today and noticed this beautiful German blue ram in with some discus fish. He was the only one and seemed rather shy and overwhelmed by such big fish with him/her. As I was watching the GBR, the owner of the store came up and asked if I was interested in it, I told him yes but didn't really have the money for it right now. He said since he'd seen me in the store so much he'd give him to me if I gave him a good home where he wasn't stressed! So, here he/she is!

Wow, it looks awesome! Must be pretty tiny since the guppy in the background dwarfs it totally. Lol.

That would be a LFS I would be sure to spread the word around about. I have a great store near me I brag about when it comes to healthy fish and corals. They know I brag about them.

Thanks everyone! She (I'm thinking it's a girl because of the purple on her belly) is doing very well, darting around like crazy and eating like a champ! Everything I'd read said that GBR's are usually aggressive, but I don't think she got that memo. I'm anxious to be able to move her to my 36 gallon when it is stable, I can't wait to watch her swim around with all that room. She's not too very small, the guppy was on front and also darting do it makes her look so tiny. My LFS is amazing, if you don't have the right tank for the fish, or right setup, you don't get the fish. They are very knowledgable and friendly, and started the shop simply because they love fish and want to share that with other people. It isn't just a money maker for them, they take amazing care of their fish.
