55 is fine, i have mine in a 20 gallon, there is a small bit of agression but no injuries, neither of them are in hiding, there both to brave for there own good.

these little guys are so cool, the other day my wife and i were doing the weekly gravel vac and the rams were all just so curious as to what was going on they kept going up the the vac tube, it was so funny.I could just picture a pop up thing over there heads saying "umm what the heck are you doing"..lol

They keep teasing me cause 2 of them are staying mostly together on one side of the tank, gets me hoping they are pairing off but after a while they stop doing it.The way they raise there dorsal reminds me of the cockateil birds i used to have years ago.

I have 3 bolivian rams. Got them about 2 weeks ago and they dont seem to bother any other fish species but they sometimes do get picky towards one another. I just today bought 3 blue rams so now I am waiting to see how well they will react to one another. I have a 90 gallon that has 4 pieces of driftwood and quite a few plants to hide around so I think that will help. All of the rams are the smallest fish I have in the aquarium except cories. My other fish are gouramis and long finned black tetras and some giant danios so I think they all will be ok.
Good luck with em.

update.

so far they seem to be doing good but i am concerned about one of them.
Today i noticed he or she is not eating and is staying off to the corner of the tank away from the other fish.I tested the water and all is good amn-0 nitrite-0 and nitrates around 20ish,doing water change tomorrow with a gravel vac to reduce the nitrates..
