I've found conflicting advice on these adorable little buggers, and I'm hoping to get some more concrete advice on here from people who have actually kept them.
I currently have one female Ram in my 20L. I'm waiting for my 40 to cycle and mature before changing her over. How ever.... I would really like to have a breeding pair. I've absolutely fallen in love with this fish.
So far what I have gathered that is the same across the board,
-Temp of 80-84
-30 gallons min.
-Small water changes weekly are better than larger bi-weekly
Now my questions are... Is my tank appropriate?
My parameters are the same for all of my tanks.
Nitrate - 15ppm
Nitrite - 0
Ammonia - 0
Hardness - 75
Alkalinity - 0
pH - 6.0-6.2
I use Aqua Clear's for all of my tanks; my ten and twenty have an AquaClear 20 and the 40 breeder has an AquaClear 70.
All of my tanks are pretty densely planted, I'm working on changing up the types as well. Mainly its Anubias nana and Hygrophila corymbosa and wisteria. I'm going to be getting variation I promise XD
I have a few ornaments but I'm trying to get better info on what the Rams like. I've heard flat stones are best for breeding.
In general I'm looking for the best advice I can get with them.
