I had 12 in a 55 for over two years. I loved them. Never lost one either. Until they started to be bottom dwellers and not moving. SD taught me all I know about fish keeping and our Ram expert there told me they were old and dying.

It was awful.

Two years? That is short lived! My Bolivian Rams are two years old. I'm sure they have a longer life span, yes??

Both species of Mikrogeophagus will live about 4 years, provided they are in what they consider a suitable environment (including water parameters).

No, as you'd be slapping me all day long, every day. For a brunette I sure have more than my share of very blonde moments.
My favorite is going all agro, looking for my glasses when they'd been sitting up on my head, the entire time.
