It's just a saying it has no meaning. Let's try to stay on topic here.

Wow, telling a mod to stay on topic when she clearly stated that you have a male and female ram and also clarified her gender.

Also, I was raised in Florida. Lived in Daytona Beach for close to 20 years. I know the Florida heat.

Yunite rams

Just because you have a female and male (people) doesn't mean they are married. Yunite has them listed as if they paired up, got married in terms. I'm not here to argue. I'm just sharing my experience with yunite.

Hmm let's see. they've been in a bag, in a box, in hot shipping trucks for a week, I'm pretty sure the last thing they're thinking about right now is pairing up. You have to give them time. You can't expect instant spawning.

I understand you want to share your experience, however, you need to also be a bit realistic here.

1) shipping in the summer heat

2) shipping around a holiday

3) stressed fish

all of these equal to not the best looking rams but certainly not the worst I've seen. They are in far better shape than what you made them sound. The fact that they are stressed is going to make them skittish and not want to pair off right away.

So instead of giving a totally bad review on a very excellent supplier, try taking into consideration the things that add up to make this event what it is.

Also - 'married' pairs would have been sold as a mated pair, bonded pair, or proven pair. A pair is just that... A pair.

Yunite rams

I was under the impression that yunite had already paired them. Not that they were just m/f and they would eventually pair in my tank. I apologize. But still the part were they charged me extra money was wrong. Also I can't help that I live in a hot state.

Fish need time to settle, the fact that they survived that trip is a testament alone.. you'll really need to give them a couple weeks to get frisky with each other..

Just give em' some frozen foods and keep the water quality up and they'll be more than fine. Those rams are some high quality line breed rams that will give you lots of spawns if you treat them right. Like Brookster said you've got some nice fish on your hands.
