Greetings from the new guy

Just wanted to say hello to everyone, excited to broaden my aquarium education from fellow aquarists. I currently have a 75 gallon planted setup. Heavily planted, 30 neons, 7 blue rams ( 5 female, 2 male) 2 Kribs ( both female) 5 serpae tetras, 3 lemons, 2 albino bushynose plecos, 4 ottos, 3 angels and 4 discus. My plants are well versed from giant amazon swords and melon swords to crypts and dwarf hairgrass.

I do breed the rams, they spawn all the time but there is alot of sabotage that goes on between the rams lol, i have a 20 gallon breeder set up with pure R/O water and a hydro-sponge. I usually trade them to my local fish store for frozen foods, prime, flourish, and R/O water. Yes love the site, absolutely what I needed, love learning from others!

Yes, welcome to the site! I am quite jealous of your rams. My tap water is very hard and quite alkaline so I would have to purchase an RO unit if I wanted to have any.

Really anyone can do it, my tap water is 8.6, liquid rock lol. I started by going to my local fish store and picked up 20 gallons at a time of R/O water and slowly brought my PH down. Over the course of about a month I got my PH down to 6.0 with a GH of around 3.5, this ensures the eggs hatch. I have successfully breed and hatched blue ram spawn in my tap water with a much smaller yield. I'm really a firm believer anyone can do anything, rams are very very easy to breed, just give them the natural surroundings and they're like guppies lol
