I Bought Two Rams :)

I visited my lfs and found some Bolivian Rams, the best I have ever seen at my lfs and decided to purchase them for my Discus tank!

I purchased two and when i added them into my tank they have seemed to loose there colour and also seem very scared,

Do you think that this is normal for them or is something wrong ?

Nice addition

That is completely normal. The trip from the LFS store's tank to yours always stresses these guys out. They will come around in time. It's usually best to turn the lights off during the intro period so they can adjust...it just makes it easier.

Yes, get the pics . Sexing them is similar to German Blue Rams.

Remember they get blacker before dying.. I am not sure why. So watch out for them.
