Are the plants real? You could break the block up into a smaller piece. I think that it should be fine if the substrate and such has been in with fish for a while. Good luck I hope he makes it.

The substrate has been in action about 3 months, as with the filter. Id probably throw a few smaller snails in to help clean things up. have you had personal expierence with the type of food Im speaking of?

Then the tank should be fine for him as the substrate and filter have the bacteria that is needed. Honestly I never go anywhere for more than three days at a time. LOL I was in the hospital once for a week and a half but my mom went over to feed my fish for me and check on them for me.

I use those block feeders lots. They work fine. They just make your water pretty dirty. My fish all lived for a week. (blue rams also)

Unfortunately I just got a report that the male died. I believe he is in the freezer of my house in a zip lock bag. I ended up using an auto feeder on the main tank, and my neighbor is feeding my other 10gs as well as adding frozen food every few days.

Such is the usual result when the German blue rams are placed in hard alkaline water.They just don't last very long.

K thanks. I have very hard but neutral water and my 2 rams seem to do fine in it. Maybe it is alkalinity that is the real kicker. We'll see lol
