Hi again i did some water tests : kh test the water changes from blue to yellow after 1 drop in my RO system
2 drops in my city water and 2 drops in my ram tanks
the GH test turns orange to green after 3 drops in my RO system and 4 drops in my city water and ram tanks
i also did a TDS test my RO water is 19 city water is 65 and my ram tanks are in the 90 to 100 range
I bought my rams from a breeder in this site (beautiful healthy rams ) they are bred in NY
(i think)

Your water being 65 should be fine.. Both the KH and GH are fine also IMO.
You have my rams I think..Not many sell the EBR compared to the GBR..
Try just with water changes at what ever % to get the tanks TDS closer to the taps..
The extra 20+ is either leaching from substrate,rocks or just waste in the water. I don't think it is too high but wonder what it is.. My tanks can rise 20 a week sometimes.
Sometimes when my rams hard time me for a while I will just move them to a different clean tank and it works !

How long have you had them? When I got mine it took them a month or so to start. What are you feeding/how often?

hi thanks for your interest
i have had them since june maby july
they eat 3 times a day, flakes and pellets from brine shrimp direct
frozen bloodworms once or twice a week, freeze dried krill and bloodworms ,
also once in a wile live white worms , they get baby brine shrimps 2 times a day after they have eaten flakes,sounds like a lot but i try and not give much of anything at one time. (there is never any leftover food .

Seems weird. Sounds like you know what you're doing. You said they did spawn once? If that's the case, I'm guessing they aren't all the same sex somehow. Beyond me...
