Ram tank style

Hey everyone, I recently got a 10 gallon tank and I think I would like to put rams in it. Is this large enough for a pair of rams to thrive? Also if it is, how should I decorate it. I read in a magazine that a dark substrate with rocks that make it seem like a river with a very very light current to simulate a river is best? Any opinions?

Thanks :D

Hmm it might be hard to fit them, but if you are willing to work hard it can be done.

They are bottom dwellers but mid eaters (for me anyways). A dark substrate will bring the color out. They like a little current. They can be agressive to each other

With a 10 gallon tank you will need to have heavy filtration and you will only be able to put 2 rams in the tank with nothing else (except plants)

What rams are these? Bolivian or blue rams? I wouldn't try a 10 gallons tank as the minimum size for blue rams. Blue rams can be tricky to keep in a 10 gallons. A 10 gallons certainly will make it more difficult for you to adjust the water conditions compared to a 20 gallons. Bolivian rams are a little more tolerant fortunately.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

My two blue rams in a ten gallon QT tank are doing great together. Waste production should not be any issue at all in a ten gallon, as long as you only have two. Aggression would be the bigger issue, I would be willing to bet that if you got two females they would get along fine together. The tank (in my opinion) would need to be heavily planted and decorated in order to provide hiding places.
