Blue Ram
I have a ten gallon tank with four neons and five zebra danios. I would be so happy if i could fit a ram in there? Or am i just dreaming:-? thanks

Rams are great fish but you should keep dreaming until you can get a larger tank. Your 10G is nearly at its limits as far as stocking. You could easily get another neon or danio. My opinion is a ram should have at least a 20G...but that's just my opinion.

Thats what i was thinking anyway. I think ill stick to danios. even though they are very common, they have to be one of my favorite fish. Thanks

I've also got Danios, and while they may not be my favorite fish they are certainly entertaining. I have one that schools with my barbs. They are crazy little fish.

yea i think rams should have at least 15-20 gallons...they are gorgeous, just got 2 yesterday. As for the danios, they are most definately entertaining. We have some on display at the pet shop I work at and they like to swim through my fingers like a circus act. They aren't afraid of me at all!

I keep Rams in a 10 gal. But only a pair and only for breeding..
