We Caught Half Tail! | Termato's Journals
Great job!

I know what a hassle it is to catch a loose animal! I had two rats that got out of thier cage and were loose for two weeks before i found them again. By then they were both terrified of me, this big lumbering giants who were chasing them, and trying to trap them...
it was an ordeal.

Im so glad you got your mousey back safetly!

Ok so before anyone goes crazy and says I am insane, I did consider this a lot.

I purchased a Dwarf Gourami for the 10 gallon to stay there permanently. He will be population control for future fry in the tank. I will no longer need a quarantine. I chose the Dwarf Gourami because Jackie, my girlfriend, liked them better than the others. The Honey Gourami which was the original option was not selected. I didn't pick them because they were too small. They ranged from .5" to 1" in size for 5 dollars each! Anyways the Dwarf Gourami will be staying in his own 10 gallon tank with a molly and 2 babies to keep company. Nothing to worry about in there.

I also decided to get 3 Bolivian Rams. They are currently in the 20 gallon which will be fine until they are ready to go into the 29 gallon tank. The Kribensis will be swapped with them so they will never be in the same tank together. My main question is, should I get another one?

I need to know the sex of the Rams before I can do anything else. If have attached picture if anyone can help with the sexing.

I still have not decided on how to handle the Nitrates. API Tap Water filter or Home Made Algae Filter.

From the video on youtube, it looks like you have 2 males and a female. I did read a thread somewhere on here about sexing them. its to do with the black stripe on the top of its head. on the top fin I mean, if the first 3 are black then its male or vice versa? They look just like my male Ram, theres one that is less black on the top fin right??

Yes i thought that too but not they may be too small and need to grow to develop the features. Not even the possible males have full black fins on the dorsal or side. If this is the case I may need to get another female i think. What do you think?

I have just done some google searches and found this thread. there is comparison pictures. Read down the thread, there is a ton of pics, you should be able to figure it out.

as long as there is more females than males you should be fine, but I haven't got a clue to be honest. Two pairs? hmmm, could work. they need to pick their mates apparently, they don't just go for anyone, fussy buggers. so just having 2 males and 2 females I guess doesn't mean everything will be fine. You'll need more experience than I have to answer this fully man. anyway heres that link.

How do I sex Bolivian rams! Everyone please answers! • Cichlid-Forum

Termie! I don't know WHY you insist on getting soft water, nitrate intolerant fish!!! NO! You should NOT get another one!!!

Now that I'm done being a jerk. . . *hugs*

I looked at your pics and your video - I can't tell what sex they are. You're just as good a guesser at this as I am, anyway - and we came up with the same guesses on my four! Try to get a good profile shot so that we can see their vents - from what I understand that's really the only true way to tell, anyway - since they like to breed the females to show the dominant characteristics of the male (such as coloration, top fin, tail extensions, etc) You're right - they also still might be too young to tell yet - how big are they? I LOVE LOVE LOVE BOLIVIANS!!! *HUGS* I really hope they do well in your tank, and I'm sure that they'll be happy to have others of their kind (provided they don't fight too much!) I want to point out that TWO of your THREE seem to have sunken tummies like my C.Cat did. It might just be that they're underfed from the fish store, but keep a close eye on them, because if they don't fill out in a couple of weeks, you might have to seek advice on a potential problem. I'd hate to see you go through the death of another Bolivian (cries for Burt).

Pretty, pretty Gourami! I love those fish - they're so gorgeous! I hope you managed to snag a healthy one, and that s/he lives to a ripe old age! :)

Congrats on the new arrivals!

NOOOOO! I have very SOFT water with almost NO nitrates!!!

I have Mollies because I got them before I knew any better, and since have sworn off getting any other creatures that are not ideally suited to my tap water (and have stuck to it)! :P I'm also working on a special tank for the mollies, as soon as I can figure out where to PUT it, they're going into their own special 20g and I get to learn how to make water harder for them, which should be a whole 'nother fun thing to learn all about, lol!

Have fun changing your water!

think you could have 3 males even!!!!! just looking again. oh oh, could be trouble!! Im sure they'll be fine. My ram is the most chilled beast ever!

Chesh, the profile says soft to moderately hard, while adaptable prefers softer water and will spawn more readily.... I don't think it will be a problem, I have fairly hard water, and run a constant 40ppm nitrite, no matter what I do. it comes out of the tap, and my tank is heavily planted as you have seen, yet the plants don't make a difference to the nitrate level, so unless my API test kit is faulty I have high nitrate. MY bolivian ram is fine, so who knows...
