lights or no lights?

Hi my electric blue rams are still not cooperating (no eggs!)
i have 4 foot shop lights on top of most of my aquariums(grow lights) about 8 inches
from the water, this makes a bright lite, but i do have lots of plants.
do you think lights would have anything to do with not breeding?

I don't think your lights are a problem.

Add plants a bunch they need a nice hide out or cave or dark spot they could go to make they home also good good water one of the hardest fishes to breed uv light will help

Try this start feeding them blood worms they sell them any were you you buy you fish food lower your tank water I know itís not going to look nice but some reason this make my fish spawn to at less 50% or less if you can leave it like that for a week or two also cut down the light less time,less brighter then after a couple of week fill your tank back up and go back to full light,fill tank back up see if that works donít forget to do a lot of water changes during this process like am talking about like every other day good luck keep me posted
