    can a Bolivian Ram eat too many snails and die from them?

    Thanks Ade, I am glad to hear that you think it maybe natural causes, as in old age, although I have kept Bolivians in the past and seems they lived a bit longer. Maybe the fact that I added a very active baby Koi Angel to the tank just stressed him too much as well. Never had an Angel this...

    Male Bolivian Ram desperate for love

    Update for the Bolivian Ram :) Ok, I recently introduced a 2 1/2 " Koi Angel to the tank. The Ram is now guarding the Panda cories as if they were his fry lol. The first few days in the tank he and the Angel kinda tested each other, they have worked out their relationship. The Angel was smart...

    Male Bolivian Ram digging breeding pit, no female in tank.

    Aloha all, has anyone else had this happen? My male Bolivian Ram dug a cozy nest in one corner and stays there more than not. He does follow the Panda corys around while they are spawning and they hang with him like he is their mom. Everything in the 20L is spawning, I think he is ready and just...

    New Bolivian Rams not eating and thin, parasites?

    Gerald you are spot on, I just did a gravel / wc and have lots of tiny Panda Cory fry, saved as many as I could,, but most will be fish food as we know anyway. Somehow some seem to survive. Thanks for your input, Laura

    New Bolivian Rams not eating and thin, parasites?

    Update. just spoke with the fish shop, he didn't think they were wild caught and the ones in store are eating flakes. I think there may just be too much co-motion for them in my tank with everything spawning, if they have been farm raised and only with their own kind. Think this will just be an...

    New Bolivian Rams not eating and thin, parasites?

    I have offered newly hatched BBS but they don't want to chase them or even seem interested. I do see they tast frozen blood worms, but I get the impression they feel the same way about frozen food as I do. I will hope this is just a leaning curve for them and I'll keep trying. Thank you for your...
