I have a few rams in my 55 now and they get along well. I'm still rehoming them though because I got the pair I needed..

You could put more if you do one male to a couple females, but if you get a breeding pair they get aggressive when raising fry. That's why I'm just getting one more because I'm gonna try to breed them. They don't need salt. Some people put salt in their aquariums but you don't have to. I never have. There are other types of rams too they're very pretty fish. Some people say they are more difficult to keep but I've never had any problems with mine. As long as the temp & such is kept the way they like it.

do they actually raise the fry or eat them? they sound like a good project to do if i invest in another separate tank for them, also what about vegetation? substrate. what do you mean if i put one male to two female then theres a possibility of aggressive behavior?

They are really good parents. When two pair up they stay together. They're peaceful though & can be mixed with other peaceful fish but if you breed them I'd keep them alone so they other fish don't try & eat the fry. They like sand. I have a area in my tank with a strip of sand & mine loves to pick it up & spit it out. They will dig a pit for their eggs so sand is probably best.

They are protective of their fry & will be aggressive towards other fish that come near them

Breeding German blues would be a good investment, I'm working out a deal with Absolutely Fish to give them each batch for a sizeable amount of store credit

Well, they go for like 20 dollars each at my lfs. (They only sell the BEST quality, which is why they're so expensive there) it's a family owned store, but if I go to petco I can get them for 7$ each... Although their health is questionable lol.
