    Good evening.
    I had a lady Ram and wanted to get her some company. Thought I had a male and a female. That would give one m and two f's.
    Now it seems I got two males instead. And instead of the males both chasing the female around, its one m and the f that are constantly chasing the other male around.

    What should I do? :confused:
    Get another female for the pairs to form?
    Return the dominant male for a more peaceful solution?
    Return the regressive male?
    Should I add another female to the 'one-male solution'?

    Thanks in advance.

    I would return the male that's being chased off then you have your pair of rams,

    Yeah, I'd return the male being chased. Let your other 2 live in peace :) I hope you get lots of ram babies!

    Will do.
    And the idea about another female? What do you think? 1 to 1 or 1 to 2?

    GBR's usually aren't harem breeders. Bolivian Rams are though.

    Hmm.
    These are GBR's, no doubt. And a new lovely sort with an intense orange colour on the head!

    I'll return the male and keep just one pair.

    Thank you for your responses.

    Would it be possible to get a picture of them? They sound great.

    They are!
    I'll try to get a shot tomorrow, before I take out the male.
    Now it's night, so not light and no colours on the fish.

    But tomorrow I'll get a pic.
