New GBRs!

    I got to go to a good fish store yesterday and I got rams (finally). I've been wanting a pair ever since my old ones died. Of course, last time it was two males, now I appear to have 2 females. Actually, one is still so pale it looks a little like a bolivian ram (it better color up soon). I put them in my 75 gallon tank with the guppies as a 'QT' and will add more fish to the tank in a week or two if they're still healthy. They're very small, and cute. I'll be posting pics for you soon.

    2 months and 3 months :( One got columnaris (very nasty) and the other hurt his lip, then it got infected. Sorry, I don't have pics. My camera's batteries never seem to work and my computer chord died (this is from my mom's computer). When I have pics I'll make sure to post them.

    Rams are really fun, and 20 gallons should be fine for a pair. They're really pretty and have awesome attitudes.

    Congradulations on your new GBR's. I have a variety of Rams in my 30 gallon and I absolutely love them. Rams normally have a lifespan of about 3 years if they stay healthy and are taken care of properly.
