The only aggression would be between two males over territory. With the occasional female showing territorial behavior towards other males(not her mate). What do you mean, 'how do they get on'? I don't understand that statement.

Are there aggression between the angelfish and the rams?
How do the rams and angels get on with one another?

I was wondering what happened to the eggs.

My angels don't even think that the rams are there, they just ingnore them unless there is food. The rams do the same thing.

I had a ram in my 36 that lasted for a few weeks but didn't eat. The ones in my 37 are doing great and love to eat and are always out and about playing with each other and my lemon tetras that are the same size as them right now.

It is just polite and not decent. It makes me feel good when I give advise(usually correct) and makes me wonder if I give bad advice, but that is when I just tell them to wait for someone else who would know the answer.

As far as my angel and ram, the ram wasn't eating for a while (I have another thread about that ordeal) and moved him to a separate tank. Found out my 7 zebra danios were keeping him from venturing near the surface to retrieve food, and he also is an extremely picky eater (right now will only eat frozen foods: bloodworms for treats, brine shrimp daily). I recently put him back in the tank with all the other fish (minus the danios) and he does quite well.

Depending on his mood, sometimes the ram will chase the angelfish a few inches, but that's about as aggressive as he tries to be. He usually only does that when there's food involved, although I've also seen the two of them share food from their mouths, so go figure. He's all bluff and no bite!!! I only have the 1 Bolivian ram and 1 Angelfish, and we've had them for a while now....
