I bought 2 GRB three weeks ago, and 2 more 2 weeks ago to have a total of 4. 2 of which has died already. Ive read that they are kind of sensitive. I'm just wondering, has anybody else had a problem with GBR from pet smart?

HI and welcome. German Blue Rams do not do well in new tanks and do best with good water perimeters.
It may not be them but the tank and the water in the tank. Do you know what your perimeters are? Also, size matters and a pair will need at least 20 gallons and a planted tank works very well.
Lastly, there has been a lot of bad publicity for the GBR but mine have been doing well now for a year plus-cant speak to the Petsmart issue.
Good luck!

Mine is from petsmart and has been fine for months since I got her. I have also heard they are sensitive but as long as your tank is cycled and you don't normally let your nitrates climb up past 20 they should be fine. Also you normally would only want one GBR per tank or a mating pair per tank.
