FraserNZ Posted February 2, 2011 Report Share Posted February 2, 2011 Hello all, I have picked up my breeding pair of German Blue Ram's, they are two very good looking fish. The male had all the tell tail signs of his sex, and the female a lot smaller with a pink belly. She also looks to be full of eggs and has her tube showing! I was going to put them in with my other rams until I had the chance to setup my breeding tank perfectly. However,the other two rams just jumped them, and wouldn't leave the female alone. They just chased the male off completely! It was really disturbing to watch! So, I setup the breeding tank in a rush and just used the water from my main tank... Do you guys think this will safe for the pair to go straight into?? The setup is as follows, 1 x Air Pump (powering a air filter) 1 x Eheim 100w heater 1 inch layer of gravel (green/grey if that matters) 1x small piece of wood 1 x medium sized Java Fern Water Temp 28c ish PH 6.8 KH still to test I really hope they will be sweet in this tank as I had no time to let the bacteria build up on the sponge filter before adding them! Do you guys feel that using the tank water from my well established tank will be enough? I'm also preparing a list of food items I will need for the fry and the parents. I only have have color enhancing flakes and tetracolor at the moment so, any help would be very much appreciated! PS, I will keep you all updated with how it all goes with these guys so you all can learn from my mistakes Cheers, F Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
