    Look, these fish look very healthy.
    When and if they die, then you guys can laugh.

    If any of the numerous fish shops i have been to had Rams, i would have bought from there.

    I'm not laughing....I have made a personal choice to not purchase any livestock from him but I'd recommend anyone to get equipment from him...that is at a decent price and he has a very wide variety of items.

    Cheers

    Very nice LiftCrazy :)

    I would suggest you cut off the leaves on the plants that are busy dying. I got some plants for you if you'd like some, so just shout and come get some. PM me if you're interested

    Cheers mate

    Update pics

    I took these pics last night of one of my last remaining Rams.
    What a hansome fish!

    The other 2 T5 tubes are in now... what a difference. The plants are loving it.
