    The key with water is, CONSTANT, specially with fish such as Rams and discus. your water seems fine to me. I've never kept bolivians I personally think German Rams are prettier? lol, I've never try to change my water chemically. all I do is make sure that the water I replenish is the same temperature as the one in the tank. and when I get rams or discus I float the bag for 15 mins then i poke two wholes with a needle in the bag so that the PH acclimates slowly. I only did this for rams, cardinals, and discus, which are a lil sensitive. and thank you for the compliments

    Although I haven't kept either, I prefer Bolvians. They're colors are subtle but very pretty. otherwise, my other favorite dwarf cichlid is apistogramma nijsseni.

    Def!!! females are usually smaller and if they're males present in the tank they will have swollen pink bellies males will always be show offs.

    Well ended up going with Bolivians, they should be here next week...
    While not as colorful they are still pretty nice and my water parameters are a better match for them,

    If I do well with these, then maybe some GBR's down the road.

    sir, i wish i stumbled on this thread, as i would have definitely added in my two cents...
    have you seen the electric blue rams? they're definitely not wild stock, but they definitely give off a wicked stunning impression.

    im also a sucker for apistos. apistogramma cacatuoides comes in a whole slew of colors so chose a color morph that fits you best. have fun! looking forward to your updates!
