  1. Default How many GBR could go in this tank?

    Hi there
    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.

    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.
