That is a sharp looking tank. Did you plant the Java Fern in the substrate, or anchor it to a decoration?

That is a great looking tank. I really like the rock backdrop. If these rams are recently purchased it is possible that you have two males. From what I have seen out there, rams that are less than a year old, and have that much color tend to have hormoes injected. I hope you do have a female though, then you can breed and send a few females my way! I have two males....

My wife rolls her eyes when I talk about getting another tank

That's a great looking tank! I love the way the slate is set up - it is very unique and gives the tank a real distinctive look that I love BTW :) Your rams are gorgeous as well, and I'm sure they'll color up better once they've been with you for a while.
