Gold Rams are VERY hard to find in the areas I shop for fish. Only one place I know has them (not even close to Toledo so don't ask).

Very pretty fish you have there. Are you tempted to breed it?

Yes.

We just brought in a bunch at the shop...probably the nicest rams of any colour that we have ever had in....several pairs that we sold apparently spawned within days of being introduced to their new homes.

Thanks for all the comments. I vowed no never buy Rams again after losing so many GBRs. Even with pristine water and perfect chemistry, I had never been able to keep. My wife twisted my arm one day and we came home with 4 of them. We lost one of them about 2 months ago, but the remaining 3 have done very well. The fact that I now think I have 3 males leads me to believe that the other fish may have been a female.....which would explain why she was so stressed! I will take a closer look at them tonight. If they are indeed 3 males, I may end up trying to find some females and try to spawn them. I have a spare 20G that I can set up as a breeder for them.
