here' are a few articles on the blue ram
German Blue Ram Cichlid
German Blue Ram
please take the time to read up on the ram before you get one. one thing i can't stress enough is clean water. frequent water changes are key to a healthy aquarium and fish. i do a 15 gal. water change every 3rd day (i have a 50 gal. aquarium) clean fresh water will keep your fish in top shape and keep disease out of the aquarium. i have some of the same fish for over 3 years. i credit that to water parameters and gravel cleaning on a regular basis. good luck.

I think I read most of the articles about German rams. I am kind of scared to get one. But I know what to do..

Thanks!

My small experience is they cant live through poor water. I got a pair a ~ 18 months ago, and long story short, had a big bunch of plants melt on me at the same time and had a horrible water issue didn't notice until it was too late.

Then it took sooooo long before I was even willing to try them. I saw this handsome little guy (the one in the pics) and thought I would try. It is a mature tank and has a light bioload.

My pwc are about every 10 days -2 weeks. The hob filter has double media with a sponge prefilter and a chunk of media filter pad to soften the hob's outflow as well and it is over sized for the tank, 16G bowfront. I do 25-33% pwc. He has been getting more bold and friendly. Also had a big Koi Angel in there temporarily and that scared him, now there are 4 Diamond Tetras and a Betta, and the little Ram comes up to the top of the tank for food.

Looking for some local bred additions myself to get him some Ram friends... If not, then back to the lfs. When I got him he was in with about 4-5 other Rams and he was the only one with a lively brightness to him and very active. Gorgeous fish which I really love.
