Nice rams.:thumbsup: You might have to improve their menu as well judging by how they look.:)

they get dark when they are either stressed or trying to be dominant, obviously here they are trying to be dominent and are gaining color, and blue, i upped there daily food consumption, they dont seem to mind and and are slowly letting me hand feed them, it will take time but they are less scared of my hand in the water.

Hey musho, I read on a post that the bolivian rams are your fav, mine are German Blues. The quarrel one minute then the next minute they are like best friends. Here are some pics:

Now its WWIII


Turns out there are two losers
