Hi Gwen!

I actually got her at a fish store by my house that's been around for over 20 years. I only trust fish and such from him. I took this video the day I got the German Blue Ram, and yes she was a little shy at first. He has opened up a bunch! ( I'm not sure if it's a boy or girl so I keep saying he/she lol) He's eating very well. I feed flakes, granules, and blood worms. I just fed some blood worms before and he went right up to them and started munching away lol. I'm definitely not overfeeding :) I make sure I don't do that. But he seems very happy. I always see him swimming around through the cave and stuff, so I think he's content. I'm going to put another video of up of him. You can really see the difference in his personality. He's more comfortable now. His colors are so pretty, like a glowing blue :) Thanks for writing back!!

I see too you have a Bamboo shrimp. With a new tank set up, he may not find enough food in the water to live. You may want to do some reading on them, because they are so cool and it would be sad to lose him. Does he pick food off the bottom, or is he regularly fanning, and seem to get food out of the water?

Just because animals can't talk, does not mean they should not be heard

Thanks =) I'll check our ur video! Well this tank has been set up for a year already. He fans, and goes on the substrate. Most of the time he's fanning. Before I left for work today he was lol..He goes on the plant right where the water comes out from the filter and sits there for hours upon hours lol I've had him for about 6 months now

Oh, sorry. I somehow had the impression this was a new tank - probably because of the nitrite discussion. I really like my bamboo shrimp :)
