Blue Ram Cichlid
Ram Cichlid

The freshwater ram cichlid (Mikrogeophagus ramirezi) is endemic to the Orinoco River basin, Venezuela and Colombia.

The ram cichlid is innately shy and is best kept with passive dither fish, such as neon or cardinal tetras. It is easier to maintain the species in larger aquaria as the species is intolerant of common aquarium pollutants such as nitrate. The species is prone to filial cannibalism of its brood if distressed. As the water must be free of pollutants, aquarium filtration is important, though water movement should not be extreme.

Crystalwort
Crystalwort
Crystalwort (Riccia fluitans) is a floating plant used as a retreat for young fry and in live-bearing tanks.

It normally grows quickly at the surface. When kept about two to three inches below a light source, it will form dense, bright green mats. Any single branch or antler bud can reproduce into a large colony if the plant is kept in proper conditions. It normally floats, but can also be attached to underwater objects such as logs and rocks.

Blue Crayfish
Blue Crayfish
The Blue Crayfish (Procambarus alleni) is endemic to Florida. It is aggressive and should not be kept with fish or smaller invertebrates. Other crayfish (and crabs of small size) can be put with crayfish if they both have more than one cave/shelter.

Crayfish will eat vegetation, sunken fish food, shrimp pellets, small fish, slow shrimp, and worms. They are well known to climb out uncovered aquariums.

Copperband Butterflyfish
Copperband Butterflyfish
The Copperband Butterflyfish (Chelmon rostratus) can grow to 8 inches (20 cm) but in a home aquarium are usually half that size. They do well at a normal reef temperature range of 75 to 84 F (24 to 29 C), with a tank size of at least 75 gallons and plenty of live rock to graze on.

The Copperband Butterflyfish are found in reefs in both the Pacific and Indian Oceans. They are found at depths of 1-25 metres either alone or in pairs and form monogamous pairs during breeding.
