Can I add a Ram with this stock?
I have a 20 gallon tank with 3 peppered corys, 2 rosy barbs, 3 brilliant rasboras, and a dwarf gourami. Could i add a bolivian ram or maybe even a german blue?

That shouldn't be a problem but I think you should make your schools larger first.
Get your schools into groups of 5-6 first and see if you still want a ram.Ray Your Freindly Neighborhood,Fully Mod-ified, Self-appointed Pic Hound!! Need pics!!!

Rams are not good fish for beginners, especially GBR. When you get the schooling fish to proper numbers you'll be too overstocked to add a ram.Originally Posted by i_am_511

Rosy barbs are pretty active fish - mine are 3 inches and still growing, I think a school in a 20g would be over the top! Also, they play and feed at all levels, Rams would be running into the constantly, that will lead to problems.Why do people always scream when I'm driving?

I think you need to get a larger tank to get to the fish numbers you're looking for. Awesome choice in fish though!Good Tankin' & Take Care!

rams a pretty sensative, especially GBR your tank has to be in pretty much pristine water conditions to give one a healthy home,they are very very cool fish though just make sure if you do add one your parameters are at tip top shape!!:)

i see a potential aggro problem between a ram and the gourami as well, neither are what i would call agressive but something tells me that in a 20 there could be a problem down the line.
