Are blue rams difficult to care for??
Hi I'm really fancying a blue ram but I've heard they are really hard to look after, is this the case?? If so how hard?? Does anyone know of anything similar but easier to care for??
As to alternatives, maybe the Bolivian Ram? My experience is admittedly limited, but I'm sure someone here will pick up the slack and provide some other suggestions. Good luck and congratulations on having the foresight to do your homework before pulling the trigger! I'm sure you'll find the perfect substitute
I would agree that this is not an easy fish. This is not to say it can't be maintained for its normal lifespan of 4 years, but the fact is that very few live this long, and that is because the fish will very quickly demise if conditions are not to its liking. Some fish tolerate fluctuations to a point, but this one rarely does.
