Bolivian Rams Success

So, after a 3 months of having 2 pairs of Bolivian Rams.. Taadaa!
It all started about a month ago, when doing a PWC, the rams were attacking the Python. I stopped and noticed alot of eggs and realized the pair were protecting their eggs. The eggs disapeared after a few days without any frys. About a week ago, the other pair had laid some eggs and they disapeared after 2 days again... Didn't think much of it figuring they had been eaten.
So this evening, I sit in front of the tank to observe... only to find lots and lots of frys swimming below their parents, and the Rams chasing any other fish that comes close to their territory...
I know I know.. Pictures.... They are sleeping right now and I don't want to wake them up... Tomorrow.. I swear
So, hopefully some make it..

I will be needing a bigger tank, since about 6 months, I have doubled my Cory Cat population, and now these...
60 Gal --> going on 90 Gal soon!

COngratulations. Make sure the fry have plenty to eat. Crushed up/powderised flake or cichlid pellets will do. Hopefukky the parents are successful at guarding the fry.

He didnt say crushed up pellets or flakes were the best, he said they will do, which they will

Congrats on the fry, most people have horrible luck keeping rams in general, quite an accomplishment to successfully breed them

Haha.. Looks like I'm doing something right... hehe
They seem to be quite happy, showing off their colors. Quite the lil' attitudes when parenting their babies. Shoo'ing off any other fish that come close. Was funny to see the Ram bumping the Striped Gourami...
So far so good. The wife is actually snapping pictures as we speak.
