Fighting Chichlids

I was lucky enough to get pictures of my fighting bolivian ram chichlids and there behaviour before and after a fight. Also a picture of the gunk that was in my filter after one and a half months of having the tank (its mainly poop)

Glaring Gills

First round, one on the left won it

Getting ready to strike again

Second round, one on left wins again

Poop and other "stuff"

Nice rams. You might have to improve their menu as well judging by how they look.:)

Sent from my desktop or phone or whatever else I am holding on to  2
I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

they get dark when they are either stressed or trying to be dominant, obviously here they are trying to be dominent and are gaining color, and blue, i upped there daily food consumption, they dont seem to mind and and are slowly letting me hand feed them, it will take time but they are less scared of my hand in the water.

Hey musho, I read on a post that the bolivian rams are your fav, mine are German Blues. The quarrel one minute then the next minute they are like best friends. Here are some pics:

One of the left is blurry because he is about to jump his buddy (who incidentally was not prepared)

Now its WWIII

Turns out there are two losers
