German Blue Ram Cichlid Care, Breeding, Comatibility & Profile





German Blue Ram Cichlid

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