The German Blue Ram, or more correctly called Blue Ram, is one of the most popular dwarf cichlids available for the home aquarium. Their bright, vibrant colors rival those of many saltwater species. It is these colors, coupled with their fast growth rate, willingness to spawn in even very small tanks, and their unique “personality,” make it easy to see why Rams are one of the most popular aquarium fish. Rams are available in three basic color variants; German Blue, Gold, and Electric Blue. Each of these colors also has a Long-Fin genetic variant, and there also may be some other hybrid crosses available.
All of the Rams we ship are juveniles, between 3 1/2 to 4 months old. While Rams do not reach full size until approximately 6 months of age, they are well colored and easily sexed.
