Okay so after a long and frustrating search I finally was able to obtain some Rams
I think the LFS
got me though, there was one adult GBR and several juvies. So I bought the adult and 2 of the babies even though the babies didn't seem to have the right coloration, I assumed they would grow into it. Anyway when I got them home and in the tank the jvniles really look different! I think they're Bolivians, but anyway, my quandry is this; In my planted 55 I have
6 Cherry barbs
1 BIG Angel
1 Featherfin cat
1 Albino rubberlip pleco
2 Rams (one of the juvies just never had a chance - the other 2 chased him to death)
Everybody gets along well at this point (for the last 2 weeks or so) so I have been researching tankmates and am not sure how to finsh it off.
I am considering a school of black neon tetras (7) and a small group of emporer tetras (5) but I have read the emporers dont like temps above 80F and I keep my tank at 84F so I'm wondering if;
1 - Good number of stock? Too many?
2 - Will I be slowly cooking the emporers and should I consider not having them and keeping a larger school of the black neons?
3 - Any alternates for the tetras?
Thanks in advance and sorry for the BOOK I've posted here!
