German blue ram pair in planted community tank
Hi there, just thought i would share how i went in the first week after adding a pair of dwarf rams to my 125l aquarium. They are juveniles and the guy said he could pick a good pair to start with. The shop had 2 big tanks full of GBR'S? One younger and one more young adult and they all looked really good and healthy. The first day after settling them in with 15 little lemon tetra they didnt take long to spawn, at least it looked like it. All lovely with a territory sorted and started eating too. After a couple of days the male guarded the 'home' and chased the female, and was quite aggressive to her for three or so days. Today, they are all together and take it in turns to look after home. No more aggro between them either. Hope it works out from here, and glad i didnt panic and separate them as suggested in some forums. Such amazing fish and i am sure as they grow it will be awesome. The lemon tetra are starting to get really defined couloring now, and although a little boring, i will be patient with them all and the plants which are just starting to take off too. 10 weeks into this set up with 2 T5s on for 8 hours a day. Really addictive and so much to learn.
