More than likely!!! I think the rams might have bullied them and then Squeakz got what was left. I put in honey gourami's last night, one male and three females. They are wild coloration, absolutely gorgeous. They investigated the rams and the gbr's were like NOPE >:( and started to poof up at them so the gouramis were like <:( NOPE! And ran away. It was interesting to watch. The glowlights are back in there for now as well. I need to add some crushed coral still to buffer. My water has no kh whatsoever. Soooo I need to work on that.

But yes!!! I love my rams! My boy won first place last night at my local fish society's bowl show. Our female betta for spawning won 3rd place as well! We were really happy. ^^ We have winner fish I guess!
There was a long finned gold ram as well... I'm thinking about looking into long finned GBR's. They would be really cute.

So! I have many updates! Brace yourselves. Pictures are coming! Finally got the camera charged.

Lil gave me her honey gouramis..The male is so handsome!!! I added them in... Then I found what I hoped to be a mated pair of bolivian's but I don't know if we actually got the right ones. Either way I'm not sure if I really like them or not.
I also picked up a little angel fish! I was thinking about getting one but I really wasn't in any rush. We were just walking around Petco when I looked up to see this little angelfish with his face up in front of the glass. He was really really cute. And he still is! Its strange, no other fish messes with him. They either don't care or he's already put them in their place.

My GBR Male won first place at a bowl show! I honestly thought Isis would win (She's our breeding female betta, black copper and gorgeous!!).

The rams are looking for another place to spawn again!!!!
They've been cleaning off multiple spots, unsure of where they want to spawn. I provided them with a flat stone to clean off as well. Right now the choice spots seem to be the serpents head, the flat rock, and the space in the sand next to the flat rock.

I'm trying to decide how I want to do my first GBR spawn too.... I'm not sure if I just want to grab the eggs and do it myself the first time or see what the pair does.

Woah! Your angels look like my guys, I first saw them and was like "what is my angels doing in someone elses journal?" LOL

I've never had any problems with 'Impulse Buying'. They're just animals that I forgot I had planned to get.

I love your angels too!!!! Nimbus is absolutely stunning.. which is the other reason I snagged him. Any advice for angel keeping? I'm just going to stick to him... but I dunno really all THAT much about them. He's hilarious though. Does not like my boyfriend at all.

I JUST SAW THE CUTE ST THING!!!! There was a pair of rams I had passed up on in a lfs last week and I regret it... I walked in on them spawning today! I sat there watching for a good while. I feel a little guilty though.... I bought them half way through... I have pictures of the eggs too!

haha, Not any advice I can think of... Besides one of my guys trying to eat a adult female guppy when he still an inch across! They sure have personalities!

I feel a little guilty... I gave them a huge amount of live brine shrimp because I'm going away... Nimbus went crazy and ate so many his tummy is the size of a nickle... and he himself is only about a half - dollar size... it's pretty cute but not good for him.


Updates!!!
I adopted a 2 year old pearscale fantail goldfish that my mother has fallen in love with. I brought him home to heal him up and adopt him out... nope! XD my mother is buying all new tank stuff and a friend for him and he's staying.

I put both pairs of rams together in the 40. They have finally settled to either side of the tank. They don't seem happy about it but they should be fine.
Nimbus doesn't like friends.. I tried another baby angel. He disagreed. I also tried celestial pearl danios/galaxy rasboras... All but 2 out of 24 died... pretty shocked still.

Squeaks the featherfin is getting big! I saw him for the first time in a little bit the other day. His dorsal fin is huuuuuuuge! And he's absolutely gorgeous!!

I added 3 false Julii cats as well... I love juliis... and I hope squeaks doesn't eat them.. so far so good.

Lilnaugrim and I should hopefully be starting our betta spawn after we both get back from vacation. And as I'm leaving I'm noticing the new pair of gbr's gearing up to lay eggs again.. so we shall see what happens in a week when I get back!

Aggghhh!!! And my rams never cease to disappoint me. Both of my very egg heavy female rams died while I had been away on vacation. I'm very upset with them. :< Everything else in the tank is doing quite well. I added some water lettuce to the top... I'm excited!! I've always wanted some as soon as I had found them.
