    This will most likely result in the same behavior.

    up your neons...

    and your tank is too small for anything 'bigger and stronger' than a ram. getting a fish that fits that description would cause you more problems as it would beat up your ram and eat your neons. you don't solve aggression by trying to get other fish to overpower each other. that's cruel fishkeeping. balance is kept by your control of the stocking.

    i meant so the ram wouldn't try to nip it and the other fish was peaceful and didn't nip either.
    but i know that my fish is not a gold ram, but it doesn't have the black markings of a german either.
    maybe i got something that is not a ram.
    i will post a pic up so you guys can confirm.
    then i could get a "real ram" and possibly solve the problem.
    if not i will get 4 neons in exchange of the platy

    for some reason i can't upload the picture.
    so i will describe the fish.
    its head is yellow hinting at the gold ram. but the little specs of color it has is not a light color like the gold ram. the specs are dark and vivid.
    a german ram has 1 black squares on each side of it's body.
    mine has 1 black square on only one side of its body.
    in the square it has light blue specs in it. so it is a female.
    her belly is pinkish-red.
    i hear some people say, "i kept a goldfish in a bowl and it lived for a year."
    they don't know how lucky they were and all goldfish live at least 15 years in proper conditions.
    that is equal to saying my human lived in his closet for 5 years!

    Don't add another ram! My experience was that it's extremely hard to get two to get along in a 20 gallon tall. I had to dish out enough money to triple the amount of plants in my tank and buy several pieces of driftwood. Even then the aggression was only just drastically reduced, though not completely eliminated. I agree with the person who suggested upping your neons. I kept cardinals with my rams and those colors together were just stunning!

    to what end? nothing will guarantee that a new ram will have any different disposition. Plus, your ram is doing well health wise. that's not often the case. they are very temperamental. You might get a new one and it won't be able to adjust and may not make it. Just saying - bird in the hand and all that.

    this puts me in a though position.
    i either have remove 2 fish that i have gotten attached to, or take out one of my favorite fish in the world.
    very tough position.
