Newbie, needing angelfish tank mate advice!
 
Hi, I am still a newbie, my tank has been running for 3 months and I now want to move my angelfish into a tank of there own and add some cichlids. The tank is cycling now and the angels are happy where they are at the moment, but I want advice on which cichlids to add as I've not kept any before( except obviously my angels). I fancy some blue rams but would be grateful for any advice on offer.:-)

Blue rams should work well with the angels, also the bolivian ram would work well also. I have a pair of bolivian rams in with my group of four angels and everyone gets along well. From my understanding Blue rams are a little more demanding on the water conditions that they are kept in. Up at the top of the page if you go to the link tropical fish profiles blue rams and bolivian rams are listed there under cichlids. As for other cichlids that would work I am not sure myself, hopefully someone else maybe able to suggest some others. A couple of things that will help with being able to suggest fish that would work is knowing what size tank you have, what your water parameters are, water hardness and ph. Before adding rams you will want to make sure that your tank is fully cycled ammonia and nitrite at 0 and reading nitrates in the tank.
