I just had a pair of Blue Rams Spawn in my community tank. Anyone ever raised ram babies? Any suggestions on first foods? I am finding that the parents are suprisingly adept at defending the spawn site. They chose a corner so that helps quite a bit as they only need to defend a quarter of the perimeter that they would have to defend in an open spawning site. It is still impressive to see a 3/4" female ram push back a 4" loach.

I'd probably start with Microworms or Hakari First Bites.

The male started eating the spawn last night. I was sitting there watching him and he just started picking at the nest and I thought he was cleaning the site, but then I realized there where about half as many eggs as there were before and I was heartbroken. Crying or Very sad I removed the rock to a breeder net in the same tank with a little current running across it. It had already been almost two days since they laid the eggs, so hopefully I will still get some fry out of it, but who knows.
