I believe Butterfly has some in a ph of 7.6. Which rams are you talking about, the blue or bolivian rams? Butterfly has the blue.

i decided not to get the rams and got some different gouramis instead.they had some blue rams and some golds but i was concerned about the ph in my tank being to high and they were tiny so i was worried my pictus cats would eat them.i had to get rid of my south american cichlids and was gonna get some rams to replace them,but decided to get gouramis instead.

Yes the Rams are very beautiful and will acclimate to just about any pH but in order for tehir eggs to hatch the water has to be a bit soft.

Did you get them from the same place or at the same time or did you get them after one established a territory

Its weird sometimes fish will happily play together but othertimes like people they don't get along. Some fish don't like it when you add another of the same species after it has already established itself there.

When the meaner one attackers the other do you hear the noise they make its a kind of honk.

Most species of catfish "croak". That's from the air bladder they have that they can inflate or empty to keep them bouyant....

I like the look of Rams and am I right in saying they do pretty well in community tanks.

The is a fish here called the Trumpeter and it also croaks pretty loud

Hey Dano - how are the Rams doing? Do you have any catfish or other fish that occupy the same area as Rams? And did you get 2M/2F or 1 of each. Very interested. My setup seems Like I will have Gourami's as well, and would like to know how they are doing. Please share - thanks.

And for anyone else who have had more than 1, do you reccomend only 1 species and which sex ratio if any. Thanks.
