great, perfect, i have a large clump of java moss in my tank and a whole lot of fake plants and a small little cave like thing that only shrimp can fit in since the opening is so small, i should be alright, if i ever see my rams chasing it, i will remove the shrimp until they get bigger :)

So bolivian rams it is, anyone got good information on them? Food, water params, temperature, you know, the basics.

Im glad they eat baby shrimp though, id hate to have too many shrimp since they are so hard to catch!!

ouch, bad news, i got a large algae type growth, it is brown, thats all i can say, it is growing on my ornaments, my wall, and my fake plants, i got a large growth near the side of the wall, i'll take a picture of it once i get a camera. It is brown (the color of poop) and it grows in spots, any help?

Temp:78-81
Food: Cichlid flake food, brine shrimp (frozen), bloodworms will help initiate breeding (frozen), vegi wafers, vegi flake, zucchini, peas, and more. I do the bloodworms as treats, maybe once a week. And I do vegi's as a snack, quite often, daily or every other day. Shrimp pellets are great with them too.

For coloring, if you go up to 81 degrees, you will get better coloring when they mature.

Water parameters: Stable. Don't worry about ph, as long as it's stable, they will be just fine. Don't use any ph adjusters.

Don't worry too much about the brown algae. It's diatoms, and are normal in a new tank. They will go away on their own. Or get a group of otos, they love diatoms, and will clean it all up.

i edited that post explaining an algae growth. On the guide that blue wrote it says my algae is common in a new tank, which makes sence since my tank is new, but it also says it grows in low lighting, my algae is growing near my light sorces. I have an external 11 watt input 60 watt output compact flouresant light that sits right next to my java moss, i turn it on ever other day, and a 15 watt flouresant light that is on the hood.
