What now? (Help me pick another species!)
Last night very strangely one of my bolivian rams died. No trauma, no water quality issues, I just turned my back after righting my snail with long tongs and he went belly up. I must've scared him somehow bad enough for him to die. :cry:

Anyways, I get to go fish shopping. What should I add next? (stocking list is in my signature.)

My water has a pH of between 7-8 so maybe no tetras, and FYI my gourami is very peaceful.

I'm thinking of getting back into platies. This time, females!

Why not get another ram?

It's exactly what I would do. :-)

The rams were fighting too much, when my current ram gets old enough for me to sex him, I'll go get "Lola" a friend.

I went out for one fish, brought home two beautiful female platies and a frog. :-D And a nerite snail.

Sorry about the ram but congrats. on your new fishies. What kind of platys?

The platies are a marigold variatus and the other is a standard marigold. Both very pretty, before I had the traditional red wags.
