German Blue Ram Cichlid Care, Breeding, Comatibility & Profile

German Blue Ram Cichlid

It is one of the beautiful and peaceful Cichlid like Golden Ram (different strain) to have in a tropical aquarium. And they spend most of the time at the bottom of the aquarium, in search of food. Its wonderful to watch a pair fish which does a dancing movement facing each other. They are good parents. Some times when guarding their eggs, they will be little aggressive towards inmates.

This fish is not certainly for beginners, but with proper water parameters  and temperature it is easy to maintain this fish and also to breed.
