  1. Default GBRs & Rainbowfish?


    0 Not allowed!
    I am thinking of upgrading to a 55 gallon from a 30 gallon, and am wondering of fish stocking possibilities. Right now I have a GBR, neons, emerald dwarf rasboras, and threadfin rainbows. I am wondering about adding a pair of gold rams and a school of rainbows, possibly dwarf neons. Would these be compatible? Any other suggestions to add to what I currently have? It will be a planted tank as my 30 gallon is. Thanks!
    55 gallon planted - Fish & Shrimp - Pair of Gold Rams, albino bristlenose plecos, school of neon tetras, school of praecox dwarf neon rainbowfish, australe orange killifish, yellow kimono killifish, amano shrimp, bamboo shrimp, and a cherry shrimp colony. Plants - Dwarf baby tears, vals, guppy grass, moss, narrow-leafed java fern, amazon swords, anubias, and crypts

    I had a ram a while back and I had him in with large angelfish and he was bullying the angelfish
    very badly so that just shows the aggression that one little fish can have. my suggestion would be to get a small group then they will pay more attention to each other and not your bigger fish they do very well with tetras though.

    The rams will get somewhat territorial during breeding but your rainbows will be fine as they tend to stay towards the mid- upper regions of the tank. Ensure you're getting a male/female pair of rams. Dwarf neons like all other rainbows should be kept in schools, ideally it's suggested to keep them in a 1-2 male to female ratio but I've had no problems with a couple more females than males. Alternatively you can do an all male dwarf neon rainbow school.

    In case anyone else is thinking of doing this...an update...I initially had a school of 6 male praecox (dwarf neon) rainbowfish, which was due to mis-identifying males and females in the fish store. They fin-nipped most of the community fish in my tank. I was able to trade in the males and get 2 females and 2 males, and it was a remarkable change. They are now peaceful and occasionally chase each other and the males display for the females, which is neat to watch. I added a pair of gold rams, and they don't bother each other or go in each other's space at all. The rams haven't spawned yet, so we'll see how it goes if that happens. But so far, it seems like this works. :) And they are all beautiful fish.
