Lisa, you do have a beautiful aquarium. All the plants really looks good and maturing well. The addition of the extra fishes is a nice touch.

All filling in nicely and according to plan. Nice Mikrogeophagus altispinosus, I can't quite tell from the photos if they are male or female, and of course they are not mature. But they have plenty of space for territories if they are both the same.

Yes, Johnny, this cichlid is very good with tetras and all characins. One of the best because it will adapt to differing water parameters unlike many of the dwarf cichlids which are very specific.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business.

Yup, they are Bolivan Rams and I LOVE them. I'm so glad I got them. They have a lot of character and fun to watch. Like Byron stated, the Bolivian Ram is a very good community fish.

Byron, I can't quite tell the sex yet either. I want to say both males, but one does show a bit more color than the other. They are still fairly young though, so that can change in the next few months. There is plenty of cover for territores though if they both end up being male, so I am not worried.

OP, can we see some more updated pics? It's been a few months and I'm deciding on plants for my 125gal.

The Rams are beautiful. I have a male bolivian, and two females, a yellow and blue.
