    seriously discus
    Participant

    I have 6 German Rams along with other Tetra’s and Discus.I have noticed 2 of them ‘getting friendly’.Since i don’t know how to sex Rams i’m guessing they are both of the opposite sex as they have now become territorial and fight eachother when the other oversteps his boundry.Today a little food fell into one of the Rams territory and i notice him chasing away all other fish including the bigger Discus and won’t let anybody near his space.Is this a sign that he/she is ready to breed?
    Please help….
    Thanks,
    Shiv

    Or perhaps the breeding already happened and he’s guarding a brood?
    I never bred Rams. Are they typical egg layers on stone? Have you check vertical surfaces in the fish in questions’ territory

    yup they are typical substrate spawners UA,
    Shiv from how you describe them i suspect they are both the same sex, but a pic would sort that out easier mate.
    usually the female is smaller than the male has shorter finnage and usually has a rosy belly.

    Here’s a pic of a pair from the knowledge base Shiv. The female is the fish on the left.
