Well the way marketing is today with everything, I'm just waiting for someone to put a NIKE swoosh emblem on a fish......Thanks for the info on the ballon rams, 1077.........never seen them before till now.........I myself am not into the genetically altered fish, but each person has their likes and dislikes, i guess im a purist.........never thought i would be saying that!...........Im not berating anyone who owns these fish, its just not my thing........from what i read and 1077 has stated, it seems when someone selectively breeds fish like this, it shortens their lifespan, but im sure there are exceptions to that rule......

Hi Miller Time!

I've seen the balloon ram in a local shop - I have to admit being tempted, as I didn't understand what I was looking at the time either. Luckily for me they had ich and I left them and had time to read up. As a former persian cat lover, that kind of distortive breeding makes me nuts (they actually breed those cats to the point they can't breath - how is it judges reward that? )

Well, you have found yourself a couple of very pretty fish. You'll probably want to read up on Blue Rams (the same fish without the belly), as they can be a bit challenging. Worth it though.

Welcome to the forum! Like you, I'm pretty new and jumped on as I upgraded my 20 a 46. Some really great folks on here, I enjoy it.

Best of Luck.
Sue

New tank set up on hard wood floors

Setting up a couple of tanks eral soon (35 and 80), but now my caret has been replaced by the original hardo wood floors. I'm concerned about the weight distribution and potential water damage.
Does anyone have any ideas about what material/s to use as a suppport/base, and anything that may alleviate water spillage/damage.
Thanks
