Rams do need a varied diet and they need live food to keep up their colors

Just my grandparents experiance, as I said, my grandparent had them in a 100 gal with oher fish but said that they prob. would have been happier having the tank to theirselves,

and I think she/he wants to have other fish in the tank

goodness my thread took away without me XD



bettalover2033

As per petco/Petsmart, theyre about 8$ each for the smallest ones, which I want since I want to raise them as much as possible. Not sure on what colors I want though Im pretty sure Ill be getting them UNLESS I find a king betta that just takes my breath away XD


LittleBettaFish

looked up rams and they dont sell them at any petstores near me so I think ill be passing on them. I want this to be a planted tank so ill be focusing most of my funds on those rather than shipping fish c:

Thank you for the suggestion though, they are very pretty!








From my research on angelfish, a 29 gallon is ideal for 1 but 2 can work if its a spawning pair since they wont fight when breeding time comes around. Id be buying 2 random angels out of a petstore tank so I dont want to take that chance on getting 2 that want to kill each other later on down the road.

Having one would be nice but the tank would be a little sparse XD

If you want to have a planted tank and a ryukin, I wouldn't suggest it. Planted tanks plus ryukins don't mix because ryukins are too big and need all the space they can get. I think later on down that road you're going to need to upgrade your tank to have the proper required space for it.

True, about the cichlids, but they can be in a tank with tall "thin" planted bunches in spots all around the tank because they can easily maneuver around them.

The plants are going to be snacks for the ryukin, plus there a few plants they dont really like


This tank is going to be really sparsely planted so it wont get in the way of the fush c:

@emeraldsky: Then that shouldn't be too bad. I suggest Moss Balls. They are so cool! I love them! They are great for fish like Ryukin's because they wouldn't bother them as much.
