I decided to try keeping Rams again since ( knock on wood ) keeping Apisto's seem to be getting easier as time goes by yes I have lost a few but I have also have 6 or 7 tanks with young. So here is my question are there any words of wisdom in keeping Rams? The PH is 7.3 TDS 173 ppm Nitrate 0ppm Temp. is 80 deg.F. The biggest reason I am asking in the past it seems like they would do fine for months then die out, I am aware being cichlids they will get aggressive towards one another. As of now they are still young and once I get a pair the others will have to be removed. Right now I have 4 golden rams and 2 german blue rams all 6 are in a 20 long no other fish in the tank so any pointers comments etc??
