    Ive decided to get tanks that are for german blue rams only and attempt to breed them since I havent been able to in the past with my community aquariums. My question is, how many tanks (id like do to 3 or 4) do I need, what size and other various stuff related to breeding them. Petco dollar per gallon sale ends soon so I would like to know what to get before it ends. I know right now I need to get airline tubing, sponge filters, heaters, hoods and lights, I already have a airpump. Thanks for any help! :)

    Pairs can breed in 10g tanks ..
    I artificially hatch so I use dip and pours..
    Then small tanks like 2.5 & 5g for fry.
    Eventually you will need a 40b to grow them out .
    Mine go to small tank till 1-2 months then 10-20g till 3-4 months then 40b..

    How many pairs ?
    You can just get a 10g for each pair 1@20g and 1@40b .
    The smaller tanks are never on sale ..You will only need them if the rams breed and you can raise them ..
    Best price is $9.99 for 5gs at petsupplies plus during same time as petcos DPG usually ..
