My new fishies!!

Got my newest acquisitions today! 2 German blue rams and 2 electric blue rams should be a male and female of each but they are still young and small so not 100%. I will take pics once they have coloured up and settled in! So happy. Love these lil guys

Here is the bigger ebr. I think this is the male. I will post more pics later but his colourings looked to cool to pass up the picture even with the lights out

My new friends. No names yet. One of the ebr's is rather shy and I am struggling to get a nice pic of her but it will follow soon

What do you feed the EBR. I would like to get a trio for my 55 gallon community.

Hi there I was feeding a combination of blood worm and flake. Unfortunately since I started this thread all 4 rams have passed. the little elective blue was first to go then the big electric hurt himself and never really recovered then I lost the male German blue again for no apparent reason and I just got home from holiday to find the female had not survived the fast . My tank stats were always fine, no amm or trite and low trate but hey ho. I have only bought fish from 2 shops. All 4 came from one shop and the rest from another shop. None of the ones from other shop have died. I know both sorts of rams are very sensitive but can't help the niggling feeling of something being a miss there

I learned quick that you can't go on vacation when you have cichlids without a fish sitter... I lost an oscar on mine, then got too busy with my aquaponic growing and my other kept getting sick, hate to admit it, but I had to choose between my puffer and my oscar so I rehomed my oscar. Cichlids require almost as much money and time as my salt water puffer. My suggestion to you- seechem prime, stability and melafix, 10-20% water changes a day/ every other day for the first couple weeks, do a 60/40 pwc after 2 weeks, retreat the tank as if it were new. Remember if you have plants and you don't give them enough light you will need to ph balance with kh stabilizer and use ph up or down and test to get your ph to 7.0- 7.5. Cichlids are known for softwater tolerance, ph buffering with dolomite or base rock/ dead coral can help out. Hope that helps a little.
