I added a single young male German ram to my 20 gal densely planted tank yesterday. Parameters are good and the tank has been running for months (temp 78 ph 6.8 ammonia 0 nitrite 0 and nitrate 0). I've seen really mixed reviews about whether they are shy or not. In the tank are 3 platies, 3 guppies and 6 neons. My ram has already established himself as alpha letting my fairly dominate platy know who's boss. That being said he isn't really coming up to eat. I've dropped some sinking pellets that's he's nibbled on and I see him foraging around the plants. New to fish owning and I'm not sure what to expect behavior wise of what is normal or not with this ram. I've heard they're hard to keep yet my LFS suggested to go with a German v Bolivian because he said they're generally hardier. The ram will swim the tank fairly slow during the day mid level and hids in the plants and cave when the moonlights are on. He's so young that he doesn't have the yellow fully on his head or the black spot on his body. He's basically this lavender color and about an inch long max. How long does it normally take Rams to acclimate to a new tank and what are the specific symptoms of stress in these guys? Thanks!
