Can anyone tell me what's going on with my German Blue Ram? His belly seems to be swollen and turning white, and he spends almost all of his time hiding right now. There is 1 other male in the tank that seems to be doing fine, and a female that is also hiding somewhere in the tank.

I have a breeding pair of German blue Rams alone in a 12.5 gallon tank. They currently have many 5 day free swimming fry and were excellent parents, taking turns and never eating young. Today the female decided to be very aggressive to the male. I out him in a breeder box to hang out for a while...
Hey guys! I have a new 37 gallon and I’m thinking about the fish I want to put in.
It’s a long tank, like 80 cm long x 35 cm depth x 60 cm tall, and it will be planted.
2 pairs of Honey Gouramis (or dwarf?)
1 single (or a pair?) German ram
1 (or more?) Rainbow Shark
some khuli loaches...
My 40 Breeder stock is moving to the 75g (eventually). I know what I can add safely, Im looking for opinions on (JUST ONE) of the 'iffy' choices bellow.
1) apistogramma cac. (maybe 2 fem) but will even that kil/over stress my painfully shy Bolivian rams?
2)Kribensis, these are been suggested...
I have a 200L community tank I am currently treating for ich with a half dosage of salt due to new fry being born yesterday in the tank. I have raised the temp to 84 but one of my females have grew a fungus fluff of sorts on her head. I am totally confused as to what step I should take next.
My female Ram (not sure which variety but not blue) is unwell and I would really appreciate your help and knowledge to keep her alive. Thanks for reading!
For reference the male seems (fingers crossed) fine and healthy, colours and behaviour normal.
What is the water...
I bought a young male electric blue ram a few weeks ago with a german blue female.
Today I noticed he was hiding a lot, I’ve noticed ich has begun and his left eye is bulging which has me very worried.
I’ve attached a photo. Some advice on this would be greatly appreciated.

First, I appreciate everyone taking the time to read this. I've written this guide because I’ve found that there is a lack of correct information in one place concerning Ram cichlids—specifically, Mikrogeophagus ramirezi. Therefore, I will try...
Good morning FishLore! I just recently got a 2 GBRs and I read in a few places that having some floating plants was good for these guys. I have a lowlight aquarium with a finnex stingray led strip, wondering if you guys have any suggestions for some good floating plants. Thanks!
Hey after weeks of waiting my LFS finally got some blue rams in! I bought 2 yesterday and they have been thriving. I heard they were picky so they got brine shrimp and blood worms and ate as much as they could, I was so scared because i've heard these fish can have a hard time acclimating. I...
I'm planning on stocking a 20g with a single Bolivian Ram as well as some Cherry Barbs and Panda Cories. I've kept the latter two in the past, but never a ram, let alone a dwarf cichlid. What food would you guys recommend for the ram in a community setting like this? I've heard they can be...
I'm having fun here so hopefully others will too. I've read a plethora of information on people doing right and wrong with mixing fish, but this one is unique to me.
I have a new 55 gallon tank (48"). I'm setting up the stand and cycling the water now. I plan to do this for a good month if...
Hi! I have a female German Blue Ram and a male. They have been in the same tank for almost 1 year.
The last 2 days she tends to stay at the bottom of the tank and does not swim, except when I put food on the tank and she rushes to get it, and then returns to the bottom.
She avoids the male and...
So I noticed my ram has developed this white growth on the top of his top fin. It has grown but it is a slow growth. I have him now in a quarantine tank. The quarantine tank pH 6.8, ammonia and nitrites 0 and nitrates at 10ppm. I have a filter with no carbon running. Temp is 80 degrees.
Hi, I recently got 2 blue rams about 8 weeks ago. They have both been perfectly happy, both eating their food etc etc... But a couple of days ago, JUST my female has been extremely lethargic. Most of the day she hides in the darkness, resting on the ground, not floating like she normally does...
I need help please.
I have a 40 gallon breeder tank with
1 Boesemani Rainbow
1 Turquoise Rainbow
1 Bolivian Ram
1 pair of Honey Gouramis
Everyone is happy and healthy and has their own niche and never messes with anyone else. Lots of nooks and crannies and broken sight lines.
I’d like to...
