JohnNYC Posted November 2, 2022 Share Posted November 2, 2022 I’m a bit worried about my German Blue Rams. They’ve been in the QT for less than a week. My Nitrite is .5 ppm with the API test kit. Ammonia is 0 ppm and Nitrate is 5 ppm. I just did a ~38% water change after testing. They look colorful, but they are not overly active. Once in a while they’ll move around fine or even go at each other a little. Generally they just hang out. They’re not at the top of the tank gasping for air. But their mouths move a lot like kissing motions, not at each other. They move their pectoral fins a lot just staying in 1 place. This is after the water change, so maybe they’re anxious. When I feed them they don’t go for the food like the neon tetras in the main tank do. I’m feeding Hikari micro pellets. But I have seen them eat detritus. I attached a picture of one of them. Any advice? Am I over thinking? I can pick up some more beneficial bacteria tomorrow if needed, or just test and water change. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
