hi
i hope they are a pair..the chap in the shop seemed to think they were,so
i hope so.
i'm going on vacation tomorrow,hopefully they'll still be there when i get back.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

I really don't know what a vacation is..my boss tells me I'm just lucky to have a job.lol. They sure look like they go together and what nice color. I've been daring myself to get some gold rams for awhile now, but I need to rehome a bunch of red jewels first. Have a good time wherever you go..didn't you say you were coming to Florida?

Thats s realy nice tank you got there, and thats a pair you got your self the males the one hugging the bottom, a lot darker than the female. With out going with there black spot ŵhats not 100%, just the look and body shape, the way shes close to him tucked away. Feed her well snd they will be spawning in no time, she will look stunning plumped up in her breeding colours.

Willow..Hope you are having fun. I bought a 55 gallon tank other day. It comes complete with a pair of German blue rams, and a pair of Bolivians, nicest tank I own now. When you acclimate I want to know what you feed your rams, and everything. First time I've had rams.
