The big guy is about 1 1/2".Their color is just like a German with blue overtones, it doesn't show well on camera yet because they aren't fully settled, but there is some orange on the nose.

If you google german blue ram x electric blue ram there is a video that shows them well. For some reason I can't link it.

Soooo, I don't believe any of these guys know the meaning of monogamy, they are all still swimming together in a group and the females are getting ripe and very pink.

Wait until the girls pick their prom date! Best display I've ever seen, limited experience aside. I've seen my 2 fem apistos go at it and it's a quick rush and one backs down. My rams never backed down, it was awesome.
