    I am thinking of getting a tank that is going to have ram cichlids in it, but what are some good tank mates that are compatible with rams? Thanks in advance.

    Hi,

    Tank mates depend on tank size usually. I kept my Rams with mostly Tetras. My favorites were Lemon Tetras, Rummynose Tetras, and Lemon Tetras.

    Welcome to the forum

    It really depends on the size tank you are working with.

    Welcome to fishlore! I agree- tetras and other small fish. What size tank is this, and is it cycled? Rams really don't do good with uncycled tanks and need an established tank.

    I have kept dwarf Gouramis, neon tetras, and corry cats with them. But like everyone else said it depends on your tank size

    Yeah the rams will get along with most all the peaceful fish out there, thou they will get a bit aggressive around spawning times if you have a pair in there.

    I have neon tetras with my GBR and they all get along... but my GBR is really lazy when it comes to feeding time and the tetras usually get all the food. That's my only issue.
