German Blue Ram

here's a good article on the ram. i have 2 males and in comparison i would say yours look female. when you get the article they have pics of male and female so you can do your own comparison. good luck.

Sweeeet! I like the gbr more then the bolivian, so im happy we got one, because he was the only german in the tank they had. There were about 30 other rams in there and most were either baloon germans, electrics, and a few bolivians. Electrics are the coolest, but twice as expensive!!!

Jerica maybe. That is definitely a young one, I don't like calling it till they get a little older and colored up.
