How many GBR could go in this tank?
The numbers and types of fish in my tank have changed since i last asked this question.
In my tank i have:
-6 Pygmy Rainbowfish
-7 Cardinal Tetras
-6 or 7 Ottocats
-7 panda corydoras
And 1 3-4" cory of unknown type.
I had planned to add only 1 GBR, a male, to the tank.
Is it possible to add more?
If i did add more, should they be male or female?
The tank is a 30 gallon one, very well maintained.
Thanks!Who Rescued Who?

A pair of fish would do nicely in that tank. Although bio-load wise you could add more, I don't think a pair of rams would let any other ram live in peace. Or maybe go with an all-male tank. Some african cichlid keepers do so. The theory is that without females there really isn't much left to fight for. I don't know how well it would work with rams but someone has to be the first to try...

Thank you for responding.
I was thinking perhaps a male & a female myself.

I would keep it to only 1 male GBR. Reason; having two Rams may cause them to fight over territory unless you can get a male and female that have paired. If a mated pair is available, go for it.Warning; Bulldog Pleco guarding my Sons tank now..
Please remember; every keystroke has a consequence.

Strider199 is right. If you cannot buy a male/female pair that has already bonded you will probably want to purchase a single GBR male.
