I find this erroneous and if I'm wrong, I'll eat my words. Bolivian rams are no exception to the rule that cichlids have different personalities. They can still get aggressive.

Doesn't happen unless the tetras weaken due to certain circumstances but I haven't had this problem for quite awhile. It happens mostly to tetras that are newly-bought.:) Still, new fish will always be considered as intruders anyway.
well all i can say are that mine cant stand each otehr and when one gets near another, they will fight, also blue's blue rams had a few, uhh should i say "eating" problems in the main tank, with tetras.
