My dream has been, and will continue to be, to successfully keep German Blue Rams. I'm wondering, Blue, have you been able to breed them?
They are so beautiful. I had a pair last for a few weeks, and I think not having an older, well cycled tank was to blame. I then had bought 3, one really didn't look healthy to begin with, sort of bloated up and then died. The other two lived on but always hid. One slowly paled and faded away. The 3rd lasted a few more months, but always stayed well hidden, except for feedings. Then he also 'bloated up' and disappeared (I assume death, as I never found his body).
Any idea about the "bloating up"? What happened, was the fish would get very bright and the dark spot would increase in size (appearing that the fish was enlarging? is that possible?)
Tank mates were Black Phantom Tetras and later also Neon Tetras.
