Cute! I think I like GBR's better. Perhaps I've never seen a Gold colored up...

I'm a bit worried about the white spots on the ones fins, and his tails a little shabby. Hopefully, its just from the other being a jerk, and not the start of ich and fin rot!
here's some pics of adult rams. mine are still juvies by the way. I like the gold more personally.

ok so, I know I'm kind of annoying with changing my stock so much but I swear this is the last time, and if it won't work ill go back to the original. so will it work?
15-cherry barbs
5-syno petricolas(might be 3)
2-gold rams(I believe both male)
2-apistos(pair)
1-angelfish
would this be ok? or too much?

I think it would look really cool, but the angelfish might grow big enough to eat the barbs someday. I might also add some sort of cleaner shrimp, because they don't really add to the bioload and they would look really cool with all the plants.

I'd do -

10 Cherries
3 Catfish
1 Angel
1 Pair of Germans
1 Pair of Apisto


Oh, and yes I am a member of Aquaria Central, I just don't get on much.

Personally, I would do 10, but I guess you could try 15..

I'm not an expert on filtration, but I think you might be able to get away with 15 unless there are big issues with your filter(s). I think bamboo shrimp would look really cool-I'm considering getting some for my tank in a few months.

thanks!! I just got fantail cherry barbs. 3 of my males are fantails. ive never heard of them before but theyre really cool. I also decided on the stock
10-congo tetras(have 4 bc that's all they had)
11-cherry barbs(have them all)
4-rams(2 gold males, 1 gold female, and 1 blue female)
3-syno petricola(I have 1, I don't know where the other 4 went)
2-green bristlenose plecos
I bought a new fixture a few days ago and got the ferts a couple days ago. so now I'm dosing macro and micros, co2 booster, and have 64 watts of lights.
