Would a blue ram do good in a 29 gallon?

Rams can be a little sensitive so you'll need to have a very well established and stable tank as well as a somewhat lower PH/more acidic water, and they are Chichlids so they can be a tad on the aggressive side. Thank size-wise I don't see a problem, but you'll definitely want to do some research on your own/maybe ask on TFK(tropicalfishkeeping.com, bettafish.com's parent site)for some answers from people with actual experience with the species as I'm afraid I am only familiar with the bit of basic research I've done on Rams.

if you have the same gender of livebearers, one of them will change to the other gender eventually.

oh, and one other thing, if they are different genders they won't breed if the conditions aren't right.

I breed a guppy Colony and non have ever changed gender. Clownfish can change gender. Dwarf Indian as Puffers as fry can change genders. But Livebearers do not.

Guppies and some other livebearers breed in some pretty bad conditions.

livebearers do actually, it's happened to me many times. I've had a sure male, and when it got to be that there wer a lot less females and more males he would turn into female. One time I had a molly named Rudolf and she was a big female, had lots of babies. Then one time I noticed she wasn't pregnant for some reason, before I knew it she had turned into a he and was breeding all of the females. I have bred livebearers for years. So trust me on this, they can change gender.

Platies don't usually breed in bad conditions, same goes for mollies. They can store eggs for a while, sometimes if the conditions are bad and something happens they re forced to give birth
