Godly3vil Posted December 22, 2012 Report Share Posted December 22, 2012 I recently purchased 12 blue rams from a member on here and was really surprised last night when I sat down to watch them that the 2 largest have decided to pair up and spawn already, I think they are only about 4 months old and are still quite small (1.5cm max) They still haven't developed all of their nice colours yet and are all together in a 70ltr tank that I set up for my Apsitogramma Trifasciata which are spawning aswell, I am hoping that they will be fine in there at the moment as I don't really have enough tank space in my other tanks yet to separate them as getting rid of swordtails seems to be quite hard down here. What I am wondering is is it usual for them to spawn when they are this young/small and if they do raise some fry will it be ok to raise them with the trifasciata fry in the same tank feeding them the same food? I will of course remove both pairs of cichlids at the same time so that one of the pair doesn't eat the others young. I will try to get some decent photos later when I feed them.
