Bolivian Ram pics...

Here are a few pics of my head Bolivian. There are 2 others in the tank, but he is the boss. It's rare to be able to get a profile shot of him. He is so nosy that every pic I had was him looking into the camera. I can take a pic of another fish without him being in it.....looking at me.

Lovely fish. I hope to get a pair for my 20g hex. Either Bol Rams or some GBR's depending on which I can find.

What type of substrate are you using? It looks good.

Great looking rams.... Once they start growing, and become mature, the reds and blues in the fins are going to be really awsome. Good job...

The white stripe on his pectoral fins is kinda cool. I can also see the red starting to show in his dorsal and tail fins. They are also geting loger at the tips.

I was JUST wondering the same thing actually. I have always had a darker substrate but have decided that it is time for a change. I wanted to go with maybe a lighter colored sand to the point where it was almost white but the substrate pictured above looks like the stuff I would use in the setup that I want to create.

OK, I'm sorry if this sounds ignorant, but what is the difference between Bolivian Rams and German Blue Rams? In the past, I already read about Ramirez Dwarf Cichlids, and pictured showed fish like the one show above.

What are German Blue Rams, then? Are the another variety of Ramirez Dwarf Cichlids?
