German Blue Rams

I just added some fantastic german blue rams. These are by far the most interesting fish in my tank - very pleased.

My question is regarding diet - is there anything particular that these guys like? I cant find anything listed in my books and the sites tend to be very general. So far they are not very interested in flake but seemed to like the live worms.

I feed mine flakes, small pellet food, freeze-dried and frozen blood worms. They come right to the top to eat. the do enjoy prowling the bottom looking for bits of food. I think good stock is a key to keeping rams. Mine came from breeder and have been in my tank well over a year. They like warm water 82F or so.

When I had them their favorite was the NLS pellets. They wouldn't hardly touch anything else other than bloodworms, but gobbled up the NLS stuff.
