bolivian rams fighting? #11
Hi all,

I recently purchased 3 Bolivian rams but due to them being so young the owner of my lfs was unable to sex them.

feeding them this morning 1 of them was chasing both of the others individually and then they were locking lips!

they didn't exactly look friendly! what should I do? I have no idea what sex they are, they could be all males but I really don't know.
Best Regards

Thanks fish lady.

I'm not too sure what you mean though, what defines areas and how would I create them? I know you said to use plants etc but just not too sure how I'd actually do it.

I've got another coconut shell so ill put that in wen I do the next water change and I'll keep an I on Ph and kh too.
Best Regards

Re: Is this setup ok for my stock? #15
Hi all,

This is my new 125 litre tank. I've tried to make it a good home for my Bolivian Rams and Apistos but I'm not sure if there is adequate hiding places?

I'd be interested to hear your views and any advice
Best Regards

Re: Sexing Bolivian Rams #17
Thanks fish lady.

presumably 2 males will fight? How can I differentiate fighting to flirting? As initially it appeared to me that the apistos were fighting but as they've now settled together they obviously weren't

Sexing Bolivian Rams #18
Hi all,

I've bought 3 Bov rams today that are quite young - been in my lfs about a week. I asked for 2 females and 1 male but the shop owner said as they are so young they are hard to sex.

is there an easy way to tell when they get a bit older? The owner said I can take them back if I end up with more than 1 male which I though was good though.
Best Regards
