I've had some trouble with the identity of this guy. Some people say it's a blue ram, some people say it's a blue veiltail ram, and I don't know what to believe?

Can anyone accurately tell me the identity of this fish?

The anal fin is more pointy it's male if it's curved it's femail or if there's a shade of pink or it's a male if it looks like it has a big Mohawk

Okay, so now that I know this is a blue ram, the thing I'm trying to figure out is, what is the difference between a blue ram, and a blue veiltail ram?

Either a really stressed out german blue ram or a bolivian ram.... Given the grainyness i want to say female based on dorsal fin but really not positive.

Sorry couldnt help more.

The only difference between a GBR and a GBR veil tail is the tail. Your going to have to wait to see if it grows out. As far as gender I'd say it's a male, and a stressed out one at that.

Okay, thanks very much. Just checking as I brought it under the name veiltail and now that I have checked it is a lot more expensive than the price of a blue ram and what I've got look like blue rams. But I guess it's just a wait and see thing(:

Looking at it's fins and coloration I think it's definitely likely it's a veil tail.

It's not just the tail it will be all fins, veiltail is just another trade name for the long finned variety
