    I really need to start a journal about my Bolivian Rams. This tank is fascinating to watch, I haven't turned the TV on in like two weeks!

    Clown Pleco in the tank!

    He's a hard little guy to get a picture of, I got lucky and caught him taking a nap.

    Bolivian rams are super hard to sex. I came to the conclusion that the lovely Suzy is a male. This explains the aggression I've been seeing. Sam may need a new home. I've added more plants and rearranged the tank, I hope it works. Sam has way more personality and is smarter but he is timid. I'm keeping them both, I'll just move him into his own tank.

    I'm in a bad mood tonight. I'm going to watch the Sand Pebbles with Steve McQueen. After that I'm calling my girlfriend and telling her, "nice girls don't talk to China Sailors."

    Here is the lovely Suzy with 6 members of Troop 55, my collective name for my school of Rummy noses. I can't tell them apart! They got a little overfed tonight... a bit of an unforeseen problem on my part, but I think I got it figured out.

    Sam is a shy little guy and is not sure what to make of Troop 55 and why are they eating all his food.

    Rummy nose tetras are excellent fish for a community aquarium!

    They provide constant movement & color...and I really need to approve messages here.

    Troop 55 are in the main tank!

    I'm not so sure Sam knows what to make of them just yet.

    I got 7 fruit baskets this week, if I wasn't so sad I'd laugh.

    No more Ich for the rummys but there is drama in the main tank. My female ram is turning on the male. I'm really not sure how to handle the aggression. Hopefully the rummys will calm things down but I can't introduce them until they are 100% ich-free.
