Mine is a DOUBLE-tail as well...not a delta-tail. Hehe you guy sounds exactly like mine, do you have any pictures? Mine both attack the pellets, my VT jumps out of the water to get them on occassions. I call him Shamu as a joke.

Well, this guy jumped out the first night I had him, but not after food. I had let him into the tank after floating appropriately, went to check on him around 15 minutes later and he was gone!! I found him flat out on the floor. Put him back into the water and he just sank. I was pretty upset. But after a bit he sort of convulsed and came back. He's fine now! (I guess I should call him Lazarus instead of Gorgeous George!)
I now have a secure cover on the tank, and this picture was taken after that episode, he has obviously overcome. Sorry for the blurriness.

Do you have any pictures you can share?

German Rams can be tough to raise and breed. I don't recommend wild rams as they seem to calm down as tank breds.
This pair will get much larger. I've seen Rams over two inches. Great tank for them, and video. They thrive on lots of
cover but actually don't seem to need a really large tank. Good quality water, as well.

Indeed, a good site to go on is wet web media, Neal monks knows ALOT about fish.

Bala sharks BTW get over a foot long, 14 inches. and need a tank at least 6 foot. They also need to be in groups. Rams, the germen blues are hard to keep try bolivain rams instead these are easier then blue rams, they might not be as colorful but are less fussy when it comes to water. Blue rams( and bolivains) like it warm, in mid to high 80;s, (blues more so) acidic instead of neutral ph , in such amazon black water condictions ammonia can be very deadly. so large water changes are a must.
