| || | Blue Ram compatability
I keep my 29g's temp at about 80F as it is, and have been wanting a blue ram for some time now. Now that I know my water is soft enough and acidic enough for one I would like to venture into getting one. First and foremost I dont want any of my current fish to be in danger by me adding a ram, so I wanted some thoughts on the behavioral side of mixing a blue ram with my current stock. A little tank switching will be happening so I will type the stock of what it would be when/if a blue ram is added: 1 female opaline gourami (a good 3.5" at the moment) 9 cherry barbs (one is albino) (mostly females, appears to be at least 3 males though) 8 cories: 1 habrosus, 1 julii, 2 emerald greens, and 4 albinos (emeralds are not yet fully grown, half way there though) 1 female mystery snail (large) 2 otos 5+ Malaysian Trumpet Snails (depends if my LFS has enough or if I have to order them online) I dont think there will be an issue with the gourami, the snails, the otos, and probably not even the cherry barbs... I feel the most worry for my beloved cories. Anyone kept Blue Rams with these fish species before??? (I would be adding just one, and hopefully a female.) Looking for imput on personality compatability, not water compatability (as I am working on that at the moment). Thanks in advance for any help!
