I observe my Blue Ram Cichlid to keep up with the health of my fish because he is the most delicate of all the fish I have. I use him as an alarm for any changes in water conditions in addition to testing. I just need to get him a girl friend!! Lol!! Thanks so much all!!!
Glad to hear it turned out OK.

One comment on the ram, if it really is your intention to get a female, you should know that the male ram will not always "accept" any female you put in with him. This species forms what is termed a bonded pair, often for life, but the male has to select his female. Adding a female may sometimes work, but more often it may not. A recent thread by another member illustrates how this often doesn't work out.

This applies to both species in this genus. I had the same issue with my Bolivian Ram male; introduced a female, they spawned 3 times, then he hounded her to the point she died from stress, and this was in a 5-foot tank heavily planted which one would think would provide sufficient room for her to keep out of his way.
