Pairing Blue Rams
Well, as some know, I went out and took the plunge. Took it technically twice yesterday, lol. First two thought to be mated pair, ended up two males; with one being submissive beta male juvenile. Close but no cigar. Took the beta back and found a confirmed female, swimming about with no male hip attachments. Bought her and started the assimilation process.
Two seconds later? My alpha male is promptly swimming right next to the bag in curiosity and possibly fanning his fins in a dance like pattern. Was extremely interesting to see. 30 mins later, after assimilation, I released the female into the tank. Immediately, he was attached to her swim patterns as if attached at the hip. Fast forward to later last night.
10 minutes before the lights went out, I spotted the couple swimming about inspecting rocks. The male even appeared to have cleaned a couple 1-2x1-2" flat top pebbles. Seems they might be now paired and maybe won't be that long before they make their first attempt at parenting. Not even 24 hours later
Seems I hit the jackpot last night with my second attempt

No mating yet, but they've staked a defint claim to front right side of tank, where I plopped in 2-3 flat stones. Male keeps hovering over one, as if to ask, "Ready yet hun, this one seems just right". 99% of the time, they're less than 2" away from each other
