Don't cichlids need 30gals? Yep don't have room for that. But cichlids are on my bucket list of fish =)

Some cichlids need bigger tanks (Like oscars), some are fine in smaller.

Despite the fact that I have pretty much perfect water for african cichlids I have never had any interest in them. Of course.

I wouldn't sell them per se if people on here wanted them. They're too much trouble for me to keep them and honestly no point. There's no female now so they just keep stressing each other out. Oh and now I KNOW they killed the girls because they killed the Guppy that was bossing them around >.> So I effectively only have the two male ram's in the tank and I DO NOT suggest that they go together in a tank that is less than 50 gallons.

A lone Ram though will do just fine in a 20 gallon or bigger. Ideally you want to have a pair (I did but....yeah, we all see how that went) and generally the male won't harass the female to death but since I've got TWO males, that was an issue. So they should be fine in a community with the proper fish although I wouldn't trust Boss Ram unless it was a community of Ram's which yes, you can have and it's usually recommended like the more Ram's the better.

So Mo, if you did want one or both of them, shipping and handling would be around 20 I think if you were doing two since i'd need a bigger box, but just one would be 10.

SO...tempting. I hope they find new homes =)

I don't have any experience with them. But, if the Lone Ram would be okay alone in a sorority, then maybe I can take him.

So....I'm seriously debating a change of setup in my tentative 29 gallon. Whereas before I wanted the shrimp, bumblebee goby and Ember Tetra's.....there's a friggin' adorable 8 inch axolotl at my PetCo right now. He's been there just over a month I believe and the Aquatics Specialist is actually taking great care of him, I talked with her a few times now and she says I'm the only one who actually knows anything about them which is awesome. I helped her out a bit, she thought that they would come out of the water so he's in only half water and has some rocks sticking out so he could climb. She didn't realize they were one of the few "salamader's" that are fully aquatic.

So I'm seriously debating getting him, I know this is a serious commitment as they can live up to 10 year's but ever since I saw someone, I don't remember whose, journal with the baby axolotl's, I've wanted one! They are just the cutest things ever! And I'd totally name him Toothless just because he looks like him!

I still have lots of research to be doing if I do decide this but I know he's there, I'm the only one she said that has put serious thought into getting him. People always think he's cute but then they look at his price tag (only 20.98 which isn't terrible at all!) and they shy away. So if he's still there by the time I have everything set up....I'm seriously debating it!

I would get him =) I've wanted one of those for awhile. Too bad my stores don't sell them. Anyways, they are really awesome. So, my vote goes for axolotl.

lol thanks. Yeah, if he's still there, I'll try to get him! It changes my planting idea a little but I can still do something that I've wanted to do ^_^ I'll have to see if I can photoshop something together to show you guys what I want to do
