    I am thinking about getting some more Blue Rams but I am not sure if I can have 4 in a tank with community fish. I already got 2 and they have adapted fine and have not attacked any fish. Some one said to :;google but I already have an have not got any answer to my question.

    Hello Jake and Welcome to Fish Lore. By looking at your aquarium information in your profile, I'd have to say that you are already over stocked for a 40L or 10g tank. Even though your Bristlenose Catfish (Pleco) are small they are still large waste producers. I would not recommend adding any more fish to your current tank.

    Too, your profile states you are unaware of the Nitrogen Cycle:
    The Aquarium Nitrogen Cycle
    This link will help you to understand why you test for ammonia, nitrite and nitrates also pH. It's crucial to fish keeping. If you have questions don't hesitate to ask. Too, what type of test kit are you referring to in your profile. It states you test for pH and ammonia.
    Best of luck!
