    I know I'm pushing it but I really want one of these guys. If this is possible I'll do this instead of my other stocking plan.

    So is it possible to keep a single Bolivian Ram alone in a 10 gallon.

    I personally wouldn't. 20 gallon minimum for these guys. A 15 gallon with a 24" X 12" footprint would also work, IMO.

    Some would say 20 gallons is minimum for these guys, others might say 30 gallons minimum. Do NOT put one in a 10 gallon.

    No, they need a 15g minimum.

    Alright, I guess I'll stick with my platy ember Tetra stocking.

    However, may I know why you can't keep one in a 10 gallon.?

    They get over 3 inches and appreciate more swimming room.

    It's probably more than OK for awhile. My GBR pair is breeding in a 10G while I wait for a 20G tank to age.

    Alright, I'm planning to get one and temporarily put it in a 10G. I'll upgrade to a 15-20G in the future
