New Blue Rams

Picked up some new blues rams today.









I also picked up an L-340 Mega Clown Pleco, he is in the same tank but I was unable to snap a pic. If I get one later I will add it.

I plan on purchasing a pair tomorrow. With temps at 82 can the Clown Pleco handle that? I would like to get an algae eater, and need to decide which would be a good one.

Just because animals can't talk, does not mean they should not be heard

I have my rams at about 79-80 F and they seem to be doing fine there. The pleco is a mega clown, which is a hypancistrus and not a good algae eater. My trusted source for catfish info says the temp is not a problem. If you want an algea eater I would go with one of the Ancistrus species, the most adaptable of which is the common bushynose pleco.
