Pet Fish Talk Interview features Nathan from Riverside, California, who recently spawned a beautiful pair of Ram Cichlids in his planted aquarium.

hear this interview,
which is about 32-minutes long and

The pictures, above, show a beautiful pair of Ram Cichlids with their babies, which you can just barely see underneath the parents.
Nathan from Riverside, California, calls Pet Fish Talk and gives all the details about how he spawned a pair of Ram Cichlids.
Nathan says he bought the Rams, and they spawned the next day in his 40-gallon half-planted aquarium. The water was about 1/6th from the tap and 5/6ths RO-water. Nathan has a TDS-meter, which he used to test the water in his aquarium, and it measured about 80 ppm of dissolved minerals.
The water temperature was about 82-degrees F. There are two T5 24" 20-watt bulbs in the aquarium's lighting fixture. One bulb is 10000K and the other is 5700K.
Nathan said the aquarium also has quite a few Cardinal Tetras and Glowlight Tetras that ate all the baby Rams, but his Rams have laid more eggs in a safer place in the aquarium.
By the way, Ram Cichlids are usually called Rams. For a long time their accepted scientific name was Apistogramma ramirezi, but now it is Microgeophagus ramirezi. If you have comments or questions, call during the show and talk with Tom and Nevin.
