Rehoming will cause more stress, now rehoming the others, there's a different idea. Is it planted?

I was going to say leave the lights of cause as little disruption as you can, and try breaking the food into smaller particles.

It will help.:) More plants is better than less. Plants serve as biological filtration and also gives the fish a sign of security thus reducing stress.:) Did you post somewhere that your tapwater has nitrates?:) I might have missed that. Sorry..I tend to forget.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Oh ok. Get some plants to help you lower the nitrates and reduce the fish's stress. Turn on the lights for 6-8 hours. If you have the plants, they will provide refuge for the bolivian ram thus relieving it of its stress.
