New Blue Rams

Finally caved and got 2 blue rams yesterday. They seem to be getting along well with everyone, and seem to enjoy the Cory's brushing up against them.

sorry for the photo quality

I love rams. Yours are looking good!

Also, I want to point out that even if you do have a male and a female there is no guarantee they will pair up. Kind of like us, they are rather picky about their mate . However, it's a good start

I figured that them pairing would be a long shot but I can always hope! lol, I'm just waiting for
their fins to heal up, they look like they were nipped, so hopefully in a week or two I'll get some updated pics

here's what you have to look forward to. it took about six months for them to color up but worth the wait! they are great fish. very social.

those rams looks so beautiful! I cannot wait to watch them grow into the tank and add more personality to it!

I haven't been this excited since I got my 2 oscars back when I was in high school

I love GBR's, the colours really are amazing, just wish mine would stay still long enough to get a decent pic!!

Am hoping my two will pair up. Would have bought a group to improve the chances but these were the last two available at the time and just couldn't resist!

i would give you one piece of advice that someone else gave to me. rams are known to be very difficult to keep. i don't think this is true .however you must keep their water pristine. that means your water parameters need to be on the money. 0 ammonia, 0 nitrite, stable ph and nitrates less than 40. also water changes are very important. i have a 45 gal. i change out 6-7 gallons every 3rd day. frequent, small water changes are easier on your fish than large water changes unless you have an emergency. make sure to match the temperature of the tank water when you add new water. i also do gravel cleaning every week and do a 20% water change during that cleaning. if you keep the water fresh you will help keep your fish healthy and happy.
