java fern- nope no special trick to it- just left them to it- just two small specimens thats all they were bless em! they have grafted themselves onto the driftwood to the rear now- i cheated with the anubia just bought them all lol :)

Rams died sadly lasted over a year, is that what they are veil tail, i just knew they werent the common peruvian variety- i think they were already mature when i bought them. They were good fish very inquisitive and like all cichlids quie intelligent they each had their own personality- and nothin picked on them. A pair spawned but nothing came of their efforts.

I cant wait to see the cardinals either lol, and as for comparing me to Amano well thats just blasphamy lol!

Hi Andrew.

Yes, they are veiltails. Stunning fish.
My rams are from different generations. The last surviving ram of the 1st batch prior to comeback this year I bought is now about 9 months old(more like 10). He's 6 cm in size. That's far too big for an average ram I think.

The 5 young ones are probably siblings. All bought at the same time last September. They're about 5-6 months. These ones are by far the most beautiful rams I've kept. They look like wild species to me although more likely an F1 generation. The way they color up makes me think why I have not seen a lot of that with several rams I've kept and seen before.

I did own some rams 4 years ago but the current ones are better.

P.S. These rams are such pests for ripping my black angelfish's fins.

Cheers people- ok i never said what fish are in there- ok i have 3 cardinals 12 shrimp ish you can never count them- 2 male dwarf rainbows and one fighter male who is a striking blue!

Once again thanks for all the comments, hopefully i can get it looking better by the end of the month!

To the moderators out there, should i start a new post with updates or keep this one going? Some forum moderators like to clock up the numbers, others like less clutter lol :)

You can keep this thread going. It's easier to locate pics when they are all in the same thread :D

I would love to see pics of all your fish! :) What kind of shrimp do you have?

I have amano shrimp- id say about 12 ish they never keep still so its hard to know exactly how many you have?
I have thought about the more colourful cherry but i have heard shrimp are territorial, and if its a choice between the 2 i will stick with the amano, apparently it is the more hardworking of the two.
