How successful?

29 gallon with 11 neons 5 WCM and 1 Bolivian Ram. I would love to add another three Bolivian Rams. Would this work out? Or is it better to just stick with the one?

I kinda thought so. Guess I was just hoping. I had another Ram in the tank but I purchased them both at the same time. They did bicker and were territorial but nothing too aggressive. I think it worked out mainly because they were added at the same time. He passed away about a month ago. I have tried adding a sunset gourami and despite their peaceful nature He and the ram did not get along at all. I had to re home him to another tank. Is their any other larger fish I can add that wont up set the ram?

You could do one more ram either a male or a female to make a pair that would be fine in your tank. With the right setup you could pull off more than one pair. But I wouldn't recommend it until you get used to them a little and I have no experience doing this with Bolivians only mikrogeophagus ramirezi
