Day 4: Down to 4
The bloodworm feeding went pretty good. They stuffed their faces with worms, took them a while to finish any long worm though. I noticed a lot of worms went up the filter, should I worry about this? Will it hurt the water quality?
And the fish stores in my town always have 2 for 1 fish. So I they were about $18 for 2. I asked for 4 and she asked me if I just wanted to take 5 since thats how many they got in, not to leave any behind. So it was a really good deal. Less than $40 for 5 of them. Not many people are into fish in my area, I live in a small town.
And as i expected the sick ram died last night. Im just kinda glad hes fianally done, I hate waiting for fish to die...and theres nothing that I hate more than a dead fish!

I'm sorry to hear that one died. At the same time it sounds like the rest of them are doing well.
If you can, I would try and take out the worms that got in the filter, if there is enough in there and they die at a similar time, it may cause a spike.

Sorry, to be clear they are dead frozen bloodworms. And they were sucked up into a AquaClear 70 HOB filter, so im not really sure how I could get them out of there unless I tear the whole thing apart and maybe rinse the sponge off?

Look into getting a prefilter sponge for your filter intake, that way the bloodworms won't get sucked into the filter. You can turn your filter of every few days and rinse the prefilter sponge off. You'll be amazed at the amount of debris it keeps out of your filter._______________________________________________

Awesome, thanks guys. I will rinse it. And maybe when feeding frozen foods I will just turn the filter off for a while.
I went out today and collected a few smooth rocks for the rams for them to scope out for a spawning area. I have some slate looking rocks outside but I dont trust them. They have a bit to much sparkle in them, but i'll keep my eyes out

So today I picked up 2 female German blue rams! They are gorgeous and settling into the tank nicely. Hopefully my male electric blue ram with take a interest in these lady's but he is still very young and small.
We have also added 4 harlequin rasboras in for more colour and variation in the tank.
I will post pics when I have the chance
