    Hello everybody,
    While away on vacation, I had my father watching my fishies for me and caring for them. Well, today I get the call that my german gold ram had himself wedged into the driftwood and passed away ):
    I'm wanting to find a trust worthy and reputible breeder who sells true breeding pairs of drawf cichlids. Either Apistos or Rams would be preferable.
    A lot of the sites I have looked at don't have the seller include pictures of their stock, and I don't want to purchase bum fish that have problems or die early on. If any of you guys could point me in the direction of someone on here who breeds, or a good website I'd appreciate that greatly! Thank you all

    Bummer about your fish. Rams are SO finicky its hit or miss with them, and on top of that they have such short lifespans that early death is part of the game with them. I mean, youre talking 2-3 years MAX if one lives to old age. Thats pretty young when I have corys that are 12 years old and going strong.

    Sweet! I'll be back from vacation next week, but I have never done anything like this on this site yet, so pointers on what I am supposed to do would be helpful lol! Thank you so much, do you mind if I message you next week to set something up?
