Spawning German Blue Rams
I have a pair of German Blue Rams that are spawning in my 60 gal tank. I created a divider from a window screen. The couple are the only things on the other side of the screen for now. They have about 20+ gal to themselves. This is the first time I've had an fish spawn. I know my odd are probably slim for the eggs to make it to the adult stage, but any advice toy help my odds?

The best new food for cichlid fry is newly hatched brine shrimp. I used this for my Apistogramma and angelfish fry.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
