I'm wondering if it would be ok if I put two Ram cichlids together with my 5 platies..
I have a 30 gallon tank, planted and with a homemade rock-cave.

Hope anybody knows.

Thank you,

Lars Olav

You should be just fine having Rams...Use some pellets also for feeding. I think the platies are a bit more greedy feeders, and you want to sure some food gets down to the rams.
They want it a bit warmer in the tank..as in 78 degrees, 25.56 C.

yes as rams are a bit slow and it will be harder for the food to reach them

Thanks for the answer, both of you.
Would 24 celsius be ok? (I know you wrote 25.50.)
