Are blue rams difficult to care for??
Hi I'm really fancying a blue ram but I've heard they are really hard to look after, is this the case?? If so how hard?? Does anyone know of anything similar but easier to care for??

I would agree that this is not an easy fish. This is not to say it can't be maintained for its normal lifespan of 4 years, but the fact is that very few live this long, and that is because the fish will very quickly demise if conditions are not to its liking. Some fish tolerate fluctuations to a point, but this one rarely does.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
