    Hi to all

    I have just bought myself a male German Blue Ram, hopefully getting a female today (depending on availability).

    He seems happy, attacking any food I put in the tank and swimming all over the tank, mingling with the livebearers, cories etc.

    I just want to know if any of you have experienced Rams eating and spitting food out? He seems to be going back for the same piece again, which makes me think he is swalling little bits at a time. Would I be on the right track?

    Thanks in advance for your assistance.
    Luke

    Happens with most fish if the food piece is too large to swallow at once or if the food does not break up easily... from my experience and what I observed...

    Rams (and some other cichlids) also have the habit of eating food, and venting some of it out of their gills.
    They are known as being messy eaters.
