carbonxxkidd I guess I just assumed most fish need to be kept in pairs or groups, and I didn't know they could be in community tanks! Thought they needed to be with their own, but I don't know anything about them at all except they are cool looking, lol.

Oh thanks! =] haha I never expected rams to be so cute. I had seen pictures before but it's really a whole different thing to see them in person.

Oh I didn't know keeping a single ram was a problem actually I do plan on getting a male but at the time I didn't know how to differentiate them and then we had the ick situation. She's really funny to watch though, she makes little concaved areas on the sand and chases off anyone who comes near her spot. I hear that they aren't too difficult to get to breed in tanks, I guess the biggest issue is other tankmates eating the eggs.

We would like to get a pair too. We found a few stores that sell them like PetSupermarket (maybe you have one around your area?) and Petsmart. They are also sold on aquabid but I'm sure they get a little more expensive plus there's shipping involved... But if you've been wanting a pair since so long it might be worth it! They really are beautiful fishes and from the look of it they are just as nosey/curious as bettas which I love hehe

The closets petsmart is a hour away lol That other pet store never heard of them. But ya I was thinking about taking a trip down to petsmart one day.

I am glad shes doing better. Its all ways better safe then sorry in my opinion. :)

Haha yes they are! I love my sorority, everyone is just so active and gets along famously! And you are most welcome :D

I'm really glad to hear that she's handling the ick well since rams are usually very sensitive to water chemistry changes and diseases. I hope she lives a good long life with you guys! Give her a wave from me :D
