    hi, I had a pair of blue rams which i bought from a local pet store. After the two rams spawned (and ate all the eggs) the male became very aggressive towards the female, to the point where I had to move him to a separate tank. I tried reintroducing them into the two different tanks but after a day the male became very aggressive. I yesterday i bought another male and tried to put him in the females tank but she is very aggressive towards him now. So i was just wondering if you have any suggestions for me and lowering the aggression in my ram. I would really appreciate your suggestions.

    Usually you need 1 male and 2 females. This seems to spread the aggression around a little. Also alot of plants to hide in when the aggression gets to be too much. A few dither fish swimming around at top water level lets them know alls right with the world. Usually a20G is a good size for a trio of Rams and dithers. They are also very sensitive to their water parameters so need absolutely clean water.
