    I Plan to have six.
    Should I introduce these in pairs?
    Or can I go with Six very young and let them pair themselmves from there?

    May I ask why 6? At a young age they are already pretty easily sexed and if kept in a pair will always show their beautiful colors... with more than a pair you will always have some that stay pale and won't show their colors as they will be the less dominant other than the most dominant pair.

    Intresting thank's

    The aquarium is going to be reasonably large. I wanted a species fish as a focal point of a community tank. After some threads at AC and other research I decided to go with the discus and cut down on the rest.

    My understanding is the rams are good company for discus yes? and as such I thought it would fill the tank along with cardinal Tetra and Japonica shrimp or similar. (Plan to put the cardinals in first to let them grow a little before adding Discus.)
    However if a group is not the right thing to get the best out of these little beauties (Rams) I am happy to cut numbers down to a single pair.
    Still not receiving my tank for another month and this site is starting to get me inpatient
    I will keep researching and following this forum until I am completely confident that I have made the right choices.

    I want to do it once and I want to do it right!

    I have had a lot of help from this forum and plan to give a step by step picture account of my set up when it arrives through to finished artical.

    Please be patient with this novice

    Cheers!

    Really looking forward to the set up A great idea to share it with the forum

    We are all always happy to help here

    Ramirezi are great fish with Discus...they like the higher temperature as well. It is still an option to get 6 if you want...I just always feel sorry for the less dominant colorless ones.

    There are lot's of other beautiful fish you could add to the stocking that also live well in the higher temps... if I can help in anyway give me a shout x
