I just finished up with my weekly water change earlier today and noticed my alpha male Bolivian Ram acting rather aggressive towards a 7" severum. Other than it being a little odd I thought nothing more of it. When the same ram started fighting with a 13" Oscar he also shares the tank with, I thought something was up. Upon further inspection I found what he was guarding, a fresh batch of eggs being laid by one of my female rams. I don't know anything about breeding rams and wasn't trying to do so, this is just a fluke. It was still interesting nonetheless so I thought I'd take a few pictures before the plecos find the eggs and devour them. The oscar is very tolerant of the smaller fish, but he doesn't seem to enjoy being bullied by someone so much smaller, hope everyone makes it through the night ok.
