There are some answers that can be found in this thread.

One male and 2 females in the blue rams' case would be my suggestion with plenty of hiding places.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

i know, i know.......im all over the place, but Im liking "kribs" (Pelvicachromis pulcher) more and more.........what can i stock with them? I've read in a few places that you could use barbs, would tiger barbs be okay?
also, how would you recomend setting up the tank? sand subrstrate, rocks/caves?

Thanks..........

angelfish would be good, if some are expensive, but are really something to look at

The first rule of Fight Club is - you do not talk about Fight Club. The second rule of Fight Club is - you DO NOT talk about Fight Club. Third rule of Fight Club, someone yells Stop!, goes limp, taps out, the fight is over. Fourth rule, only two guys to a fight. Fifth rule, one fight at a time, fellas. Sixth rule, no shirt, no shoes. Seventh rule, fights will go on as long as they have to. And the eighth and final rule, if this is your first night at Fight Club, you have to fight.

Not enough for angels I'm afraid, like you suspected.

Your trio of rams sounds like a good idea. :)

Cherrys will shoal, but unlike many other fish, they behave as if they were just as comfortable alone or without large numbers. Course, if you have a male, you'll get better color from him if you put a female in the tank, and better color from the female if you put in a second female. Also, if you put in another trio of 1 male two females, you'll get some fun, low level sparring between the males.

Logic is only the beginning of wisdom
