Thank you for all the comments.

These are only a few of my Pics.

Yes the Rams have mated but it was before I had MTD so I had nowhere to move the eggs and they seem to like caviar. They have been courting lately and I hope for another spwn from them.

As always you thoughts, suggestions and comments are welcomed and appreciated. Peace

P.S. I updated the stocking list above.
