  1. Thanks for the replies. I ended up going cheap and went neons. Since adding the neons my girl ram died. I am thinking of taking a change in direction and maybe going for a pair of apistogrammas. Photo is of the tank when I first added the neons 4 months ago. The plants are a lot bigger now. I also have a major pond snail problem, hundreds of them.
  2. Hi Hareysfish, Thanks for your reply, sorry it took me so long to reply. I am certain you are right as the fish has no other symptoms and does indeed fight and fight for food with the other Ram. The lip appears to be improving on its own but if that changes I will look at getting a small hospital tank and meds. Thanks Dan
  3. Hi, I noticed a small white patch on my Blue Ram's lip that looks like fungus. Is anyone able to help me diagnose what it is and how to treat it? PH 6.9 Water temp 25 ( just turned up a bit hoping for 26 ) Thanks Dan
  4. Thank you for the suggestions. I like the idea of the black neons and hockey stick neons, they shouldn't take the focus off the Rams but will offer something to look at when the Rams are hiding.
  5. Hi Billfish, Thank you for your reply, I'm thinking I might still swap the damaged fish this weekend as the Rams are my feature fish and I want them to look their best. The heater seems fine so far but I will definitly keep a keen eye on it. The heater resides in the seperate filter compartment so I hope this will help buffer any temperature spikes in the main part of the tank. Thank you for pointing this out to me, the LFS was out of 75w heaters and told me the 100w would be ok. I didn't have any decent photos of the tank so I took these tonight. I am chasing ideas for which Tetras will look best in my tank if anyone has some suggestions. Cheers Dan
  6. Hi Everyone, I'm new around here, I have kept fish in the past and have just got back into the hobby with a 40ltr (10 Gallon) Planted Nano tank. My reason for joining was to ask for advice on a defect I have noticed on my small Blue Ram, it has a little gap where its snout joins its body (basically its forehead). I am wondering if it is something that may correct itself overtime or if it will be a permanent defect. I will make a post in the fish health section once I am allowed, for now I have included the images here in case someone has the answer before I get to post it in the health section. Current setup Tank - Waterbox Cube 10 Heater - Cheap 100w Light - 10w Arlec LED spotlight 5700k (running as an experiment) Substrate - Oliver Knott Aqua Earth Hardscape - Mopani Plants - S Repens, Crypt (Mystery), Bacopa Livestock - Blue Ramirezi Pair (hopefully), Corydora Julii Future Additions - 6 Tetra (not sure which type yet) Cheers Dan
