Id be careful what you decide to add now phishy.

Golden Rams are lovely but can be very fussy about water quality and tank set up and are sensitive to ph, needing a low ph I think. They are lovely fish though.

Paradise fish can be quite aggressive I think.

I think of the two the rams are probably easier to look after, but it depends what your ph is.

i have the blue version fish - 4 in a 65liter tank
they can be a bit quarralsome but nothing major,, just provide enough bits n bobs to break up territories Wink


never heard of them being fussy about water quality - that aside, they are great litle characters - my mum makes excuses to visit my tankroom and talk to them Very Happy

well - in a new tank - 40 fish are not a good idea, your system is still far from stable.

I will do a video or pics of my tank tomorrow and youll see the blue rams Smile

Mini oscars i call them Wink great little characters and dont bother the others, not even the corys or ottos
