well ived heard rams are extremely shy is there some species of ram that isnt particulary shy and good for this tank? well i cant have something that will be agressive because then my parents will think i killed the fish which is what happened once because my dad was stupid enough(sorry if it was rude to say or disrespectfull) he got without telling me danios and placed it with my turtle ._. and then blame it on me the turtle was a tad hungry the next day and ripped it appart and ate it leaving only the bones and marrow(he was a baby) and there was a bit of blood in the tank...

The Ram is also a very sensitive species of FW fish, compared to most fish regularly offered for sale. If you are a fishkeeper who is still "asking for help", so to speak, then a Ram is probably not a good choice.

If you only get one he won't be aggressive.

But if you want a fish that follows you, lol you can never go wrong with guppies. They almost creep me out sometimes. I have a ten gallon with guppies right beside my bed and when I wake up in the morning and open my eyes all I see are little guppy faces swimming against the glass with their mouths going as if they are like "Feed me! Feed me!!"

But I always wonder how long they have been watching me for...

And just before you laid dead weight upon its shores, I stung you in the face for that's the nature of my core.
