I'm new to cichlids, so I have a couple questions on housing them. Any advice is appreciated! So here's what I'm wondering...
1. Can a pair of dwarf cichlids (I was thinking Rams, but I'm open to suggestions) fit comfortably in a 10 gallon? I've read several opinions, so I'm not sure if it would work or not.
2. How do they do in a moderatly - heavily planted tank? Will they uproot anything? If this would work out, I could use my 28gal. How many would fit?
3. The last option would be a 20 gallon... Would 2 pairs (one blue ram pair and one gold ram pair) be ok in that size tank? If I go with the 20 gallon, I'd like to move my platys in also. Would this work?
Any suggestions as to what else will work would be great!! thanks.
