just picked up some free fish!

My good friend set up a 25 gallon a couple months back and stocked the tank with 6 Cardinal Tetras, 2 Blue Rams, and 1 male Apistogramma Borellii. He quickly lost interest and took down the tank and gave all the fish to me! So they were all added to my discus tank today.

I will add pictures tomorrow once they get all their colors back.

Free fish are always great, its also nice to see someone realize the hobby is not for them and get out before their fish suffer.

Lucky you! I'm getting 2 German Rams tomorrow. Not for free though. $40 for the pair. I'm gonna post pics too!

The best part is these are F2 Blue Rams so he payed a lot for them but they are more sensitive to water quality.

It's a lot, but this particular fish store charges more for all their fish. These rams in particular are very attractive, and they are not inbreed, and if they have fry, will have great looking, non deformed ones, (so they say), not that I'm getting them to have babies. I'll put pics up when I get them. I just hope they don't die on me! This is my first time with these fish.
