I believe I've seen George Garcia at some of the Cichlid conventions and I've heard good things about him.

Kelley, you could try some frozen foods for them or a different variety of things to see what they will start accepting.

Your advice is very good goalcreas.

Do rams eat shrimp? Because I recently acquired 4 amano shrimp.

I would suspect that given the chance if the Ram were big enough and the shrimp were small enough, that they would eat them, however I have seen many photos of Takashi Amano tanks with rams in them. I would suspect that he would also house the Amano shrimp in the same tank, but could not be certain.

Thanks JanS

I might add that I got 2 pair of rams of aquabid from TARMACK about 8 weeks ago, He is another source that I would highly recommend, Very nice fish, they are doing great, almost ready to breed.

Kelly, I feed only frozen, but I mix it up, Mosquito Larva red (blood worms) and white, Brine and mysis shrimp and some prepared mixed like SF Bay cichlid delight, community tank and emerald entree are the staples with every feeding being different then the last, 2 times a day.
Of course there are many other regimens that would work, this is just my variety, I am sure you will find one if you keep trying.

I have George Garcia's e-mail for anybody looking for German Blue Rams or Discus

You can tell him Toby sent you, might get a deal, might not, worth a try.

Love the rams and Apistos and yes I also agree with all the info above. My ph is around 7.4 but the hardness is moderate. They've bred many times. A bit off the topic but does anyone know anyone who breeds Apistos in the Atlanta, Georgia area?
