aggressive electric blue ram
 
i have a EBR thats aggressive towards my angelfish, gouramis and red eyed tetras. They all been in my tank for awhile, so I'm not that worried about it. But now i just got a german blue ram, and the EBR goes after him too. I'm kinda worried about this guy because he's new and smaller. Is there anything I should do?

IMO You should remove the German Blue Ram. Do you know if your EBR is a male or female? Same for the GBR?

If they are both males, they will most likely always fight. If one is female, they could settle down but honestly I would remove the GBR. I would not suggest any more cichlids in this tank unless you want breeding pair.

Cichlids are territorial. Rams are peaceful but males vs males is deadly.
