these guys are kind of difficult to feed so i took a shot glass and i use it for food like new life spectrum cichlid formula and sometimes micro wafers, every two days i drop a cube of frozen bloodworms they go crazy for it. i think its a really good clever idea for rams since they can be a pain in the ass to feed.

they aren't too comfortable because unfortunately my tank is going through the last stage of nitrate cycle so it should be done by next week. im considering getting a tank separator because the female bullies the male, instead for now i added some fake plants and more hiding spots.

Nice tank set up. I think an entire cube of bloodworms is over feeding them, but that's me. Especially if your tank is still cycling, than you should be very careful not to overfeed. I can't even imagine how they are alive if you have nitrites (which I'm assuming you are referring to) You wrote "nitrates" but remember most tanks (except those very heavily planted) will usually have some nitrate reading. You want to keep it under 20ppm.

so the tank is cycled and heres whats going on, so what i thought was a female is actually a male the bigger ram bullies the smaller one, i split the tank in half to rehabilitate the smaller ram because he had beautiful color when i first got him he was in a 37 gal bow front. so anyways both look brighter since i split them occasionally they ram each other through the divider but no harm is done they seem to like it. the smaller one hasn't been eating food so i am fasting both of them until tomorrow and ill feed them frozen bloodworms. i think its because he is still stressed from the water change and the bigger ram but these are slow fish so gotta be patient.
i did a nitrate test and its only 10ppm. so basically they seem to be getter brighter and look less stressed. im in the process of getting a separate 10 gallon for the smaller one or breed guppies and feed the fry to the rams.
