    Hello Fishmates!

    My sister in law has a question about her stock she would like to ask you guys!

    She has a Juwel tank, about 30 gallons. She has a couple of blue dwarf gourami and she would like to add a male and female apistogramma ramirezi. She is wondering if this is possible in her tank. Here is a picture!

    If it's not possible, can she make it so or will it just not work?

    Love from the Netherlands!

    Looks like there are more than just gouramis in there... can you be more specific and how many there are of each? :)

    First off how much dwarf Gouramis does she have?

    Usually Dwarfs are aggressive and males will kill each other or fight to the death.

    IMO I think you could do a pair (1m/1f) of bolivian rams instead and put the temp around 78-79F°

    Looks like a school of neon tetras and 1 forktail rainbow? I can't see anything else (From my point of view :)).

    Thanks guys! Gosh you are fast! I asked her for a stock list:

    5 apple snails (?)
    2 guppies
    9 cardinal tetras
    7 corydoras
    1 colisa lalia female (needs a new male I guess:))
    8 shrimp
    1 dwarf cichlid (It's a female cacatouides, the male recently died so maybe she will give this one a new home; or she will join the other cichlids..the ramirezi?)
    1 forktail rainbow

    What's the dimensions of the 30 gallon?
  7. TiandaNew MemberMember

    32x16x16 ish, converted from metric system:) (80x40x35 centimeters)

    What type of cories are they? I wouldn't add more dwarf cichlids if there already is one. Also I'd get rid of the forktail rainbow.

    They are panda cories. I read that cories don't care about territories so they swim in them.. from what I understand in your responses until now is:
    1. Get rid of left over female cichlid
    2. Better have no cories
    3. Get rid of forktail

    Now the original question hasn't been answered yet; can the apistogramma ramirezi live together with her dwarf gourami? :)

    You can have cories, I'd just switch this type for aeneus (bronze or albino) cories instead as they are temp-compatible with the rest of your fish and panda cories aren't.
