Blue Rams?

Hello all, i've been considering getting a 20 gallon for Blue Rams. I'd like a Harem, would this work in a 20 gallon or would I need a larger tank? A small harem, 1 male 2 females. And also, if I got 2 German Blue Rams and 1 Gold Blue Ram( this is a color mutation, yes?), would the German Blue Rams attack or ignore the Gold one? Thank you for any replies!

At the fish store I got my GBR's I've seen them in with the Gold variety, and there are no problems, but I think a 20 gallon is even a bit small for 2, so I wouldn't add more than 2 (male/female) pair.

Wait, what substrate do they like? Sand or Gravel?

IMO, I would imagine all fish would prefer sand. My GBR's are in sand, and they have been creating a couple divits in the sand, getting ready to lay eggs again. I would suggest sand, or at least a fine pea size gravel. It's the most natural, and best for plants if you are going to do live plants. Even if you're not doing live plants now, you may change your mind, and small gravel or sand will be best for that. Put up pictures of your tank when you're done

Ok, thank you! If I get the tank depends on something today, so let's hope it goes well!
