  1. Talking 12 Gallon Fluval Freshwater Aquarium


    0 Not allowed!
    Hello everyone!
    First I would like to introduce myself… My name is Aaron, 22 Years old and I have kept saltwater aquariums before but it has been 2 years I have been out the fish game because I ended up with my gorgeous girlfriend so I couldn't afford saltwater anymore lol This past Christmas she bought me a 12 gallon fluval Edge and decided to go the freshwater route. Well it is all setup and I think I did a pretty good job the only thing is that I'm not sure if I got a male and female Blue German Ram. If you guys don't mind sharing with me your thoughts about these beautiful fish that I bought 3 days ago that would be amazing. Oh, the aquarium has been cycled. I actually updated the lightings because I was not impressed with the stock at all so I switched it out for the Fluvial Sea LED lighting. A LOT better if you ask me. Tank mates are:

    6 small blue neon tetras
    2 Otocinclus Catfish (Algae Eaters)
    4 Cherry Shrimp

    The tank is a bit on the small side so you'll need to pay attention to water quality. They're a beautiful pair though and the tank looks great.

    When in doubt, do a water change.

    + 1 to Taurus, great advice on water quality. Just keep an eye on them for any bullying that might arise.

    Nice little tank by the way.

    Here a same pics but blown up to get a better look.

    The water Ammonia is 0, Nitrite is 0 and PH is at 6.2

    What happens if they start picking on on another? I hope that isn't the case. So far they stick around each other.

    Didn't mean to stress you but they can be territorial, sometimes you get no problems and other times you do, if they are a pair, your chances are better for them to be compatible.

    Oh no not at all, I just wondering what would happen if that were to happen. They are male and female?

    Look like a a pair (male, female) to me. If it turns out that they are not compatible, you'll probably have to relocate one to another tank. Just keep a close on them and if one starts to bully the other, be prepared to move one.
    When in doubt, do a water change.

    generally the mail has a long, pointed end on his dorsal fin. His tail fin is also more pointed than round.
    the female's dorsal is rounded in the end and not as long. same with her tail fin.

    nice pair. I ditto what everyone else said. good luck with them and watch them close.

    I like the scaping in the tank. I may try that sometime with live plants.

    Will do, thank you all for your responses! I will make sure I keep a close eye on them. One question…the male seems to twitch in front of her. How come he does this? Maybe trying to pair with her. She has a nice pink spot on her stomach.

    that's another way to tell a female from a male - pink bellys. and they might well be in a mating mood :o) The more colorful they become, the more chance that they are mating.
