Hey, hoping to get a breeding pair of rams from the 4 we currently have (hard to bloody sex LOL) but we're looking to put them in a 2ft tank and were wondering what some good tank mates would be? (prefer fish that won't attack the eggs/fry)

Any suggestions? BTW I'm in Aus so take that into consideration when making recommendations

IMO if you're breeding you shouldn't have anything else in the tank. Most every fish will go after anythign they can eat, so if the intention is to breed it's best to go with just the breeding pair in the tank.

You can add some plants.

No probs babel

What would be the minimum tank size for a breeding pair then as 2 ft would seem a tad excessive

10 to 15 gal. I would go 15 and add some territories using plants and wood
