    True, they probably never see each other. But whatever. What do you mean, what I ‘want to do with the tank”? Breeding or just keeping them? If so, I just want to keep them. Are the plants you recommended easy to find? Do I need to include driftwood in the set-up?

    Also, I was looking at previous posts and saw one about ram cichlid aggressiveness, in which they talked about blue spots on the female’s black spot. The same happens to mine when she’s chased around, while the rest of her colour fades away, only to be replaced a bit later, by grey/black. What’s happening?

    Sadly, the male started chasing the female around again, yesterday at noon. She looked really stressed, and I ended up taking the male out for some time. But when I put him back in, he hid for a few minutes, and then started chasing her again! Luckily, he stopped this evening, because (I think?) that the female is almost ready to spawn again! When she does, I’ll be sure to protect them from my 4 panda corys, who, I think, are the greedy egg-thieves.

    Also, which other fishes could I put in the tank, alongside the rams, 4 panda corys, 4 dwarf otos, and 6 endler guppies? If you think the tank is overstocked, just tell me.

    How about a scarlet badis and a few chili rasboras (boraras brigittae)? Or would that be too much?

    Well the female lives! She had some hiding places in the tank, but anyways, the aggressiveness died down after about a day and a half. She spawned again on Tuesday. The eggs lasted for three days, and just as I started to see them wiggle a bit, they got eaten. This time, the male didn’t chase the female around too much. She knew what to do. 

    But I really don’t understand why my pair don’t protect there eggs a lot. They just swim away, and come back to stare at a fish resting on the spot where they layer there eggs! It’s so frustrating! I had already bought food for the fry and everything!

    Oh no. I already have those in a 15 gallon community tank.

    Can’t I have a pair or trio of some kind of killifish? Clown killifish maybe?

    Thank you. That helps a lot. 

    Do you know how to lower water hardness? I have a small issue with that.

    oh I do understand cycling. My tank is fully cycled. I don’t understand what matt meant by cycling/maintenance regime. Water changes? Filter medium?

    Well, the tank isn’t completely new. It’s been running for at least 2 months now. It’s an Aquadream 60 tank equipped witn a Mini Biobox 2 filter. As I didn’t understand the cycling/maintenance question from Matt, I hope That will provide you with answers.

    The panda corydoras aren’t the only fish in the tank at the moment. I also have a few endler guppies. My local pet store told me, that for a tank this size, I should only buy males, as endler guppies are apparently very prolific. Is it true?

    It’s amazing how some people are just natural fishkeepers. Thanks Rüdiger!

    Oh good. Do you know which fish they do well with?

    The fish I saw at the shop looked very much like the one in the first picture you showed.

    ” stands for gallons right? if so, i am afraid i am not going to be able to house them. Financially, i cannot permit myself such a tank, and my current tank only holds 15. I do not know if it is was good idea, but I bought 6 panda corydoras for these 15 gallons. Will they be alright in there, or should I replace them with another species (which yo could help me find)?
