Default Gabe's Fish Tank Update

It didn't take long after we got Gabe a 20 gallon fish tank that we realized that we really enjoyed fish, and picked up a 55 gallon for downstairs and moved the 20 gallon to Gabes room. The 20 gallon now houses a small school of serpae tetras. The 55 is home to three baby angelfish (3 more will be joining this weekend), two dwarf gourami, five peppered Cory catfish, seven neon tetras, a Bolivian ram and five black phantom tetras. As the angels mature the tetras and ram will be moved to the 20. By the time they are full grown we will have either a third tank or a larger tank in gabes room, as I'd like to have only the angels and the Cory's in it. But being they are only an inch and a half right now, we've got time before all that

My ram hasn't bothered anyone, just stuck around the bottom on the tank mostly. From what I've read they are peaceful fish, until they're trying to spawn, so we went with just one so it wouldn't be a problem lol

That's nice, I had Serpae Tetras before and loved them but they were such mean little buggers even in groups of 10+ and I could only house them with my Convicts . Be careful aquariums can be addictive, lol.

They were perfect in the 55 but once I moved them to the 20 they all turned on each other. I've lost two so far because they're suddenly so mean to each other :-/

That's strange, mine nipped at each other but never did more then take a bite out of each other's fins every so often but they would not tolerate other fish unless the other fish was as aggressive as them.
