Hello,

I just cycled a new 30G freshwater tank. I added three Bolivian rams today and one bumblebee catfish. So far so good. When they are acclimated after 10 days or so I was wanting to get 2 or three more fish. I would like to plan ahead and I can't decide what kinds to get. I was wanted a mid level fish and some top dwelling fish to balance out the tank. I was wanting 2 angelfish, and maybe two hatchetfish? Will these fish be compatible with the rams? If not what can I get? I like colorful fish too. Maybe a rainbow fish or an electric blue ram? Any tank mate ideas will be helpful. Thanks!

Rams are really nice, but I've had problems in the past with 3, they are usually a pairing fish like Angels. If possible I would try work out if you have a pair and move the spare to another tank. I haven't seen the coupled attack the site gle, but he is usually last to eat, and always on the run.

Besides that in my experience angels work well with rams, once again though I would say stick with the 2 you suggest, but I would say to get more hatchets as they are schooling fish, so 5-10?
