So, I just recently discovered the amazingly beautiful Ram Cichlid. I have a 45 gallon tank and would love to get a few of them. I've done some internet research, but past experience has proved to me, very obviously, that knowledge is power. So I'm posting looking for not only addition information, but to clarify that the information I've already read is correct.
So, I've read that they don't get very large compared to other South American Cichlids, only about 4", and that a 45 gallon tank is plenty big for a few of them? I'm trying to be more conscientious about selecting fish, because I've made the mistake of putting fish that grow "massive" in this 45 gallon tank I have, due to lack of proper guidance.
I've also read that they're pretty docile, and get frightened easily, that same species tanks are best, but if I choose tank mates for them, I should choose slow swimming "smaller" fish. But I'm wonder if I would possibly mix them with an Angelfish? Or a Parrot Cichlid?
Also, what perimeters should I be looking for the water?
Thanks in advance for any advice you can give to another Cichlid lover :)
