hey byron, was browsing the TFK fish profiles, and thought rams were really cool. They were also pretty small. Do you think I could put them in my tank? It said it was difficult though, and I'm a newbie..

60 gallon Lake Malawi tank - under construction

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