Hey guys. I just have a quick question. I'm most likely going to go to a farther-out LFS today, and last time I was in there, they had beautiful, vibrantly colored German blue rams. I was wondering when I'd be able to get a pair, I've been longing to pick some up. Truly beautiful cichlids. I'm not going into this blind, I've done my research. I'll be doing a 25% gravel cleaning/water change before I go, so that should eliminate most of the nitrates in the tank. I have a 45 gallon tank, stocked with 2 angels, 9 tetras (black phantoms, red eyes, and a single Congo that will be being re-homed soon) a Molly (that will also be re-homed shortly) and a butterfly gold-spot pleco. My parameters are on my profile. I have some love plants in the tank, 6 wisteria plants, a couple red ludwigias and a java fern. I still have some artificial (silk) plants in there, and a fake plastic driftwood cave-type structure. The tank is very well established. It's been up for almost eight months, and the death rate is zero (except for some mollies, I've never had much luck with them from the LFS I go to. Bad stock, I guess. I haven't had a non-Molly death in several months.) When do you guys think I should start looking to buy a pair of GBR's? If not soon, what should I do to prepare the tank? Thanks.
