The German Blue Ram Cichlid is a beautiful addition to the community fish tank. They are tropical freshwater fish that, despite being a Cichlid, are rather shy and docile. Other common names are the Blue Ram Cichlid, Butterfly Cichlid and Ramirez dwarf Cichlid. Ours are quite beautiful, with many colors including blue, yellow, gold, silver and black. They are one of the most colorful South American Cichlids and very popular in home aquariums. Check out the videos, shared with us from one of our customers.
The natural habitat of the German Blue Ram Cichlid is a warm 78-85 degrees Fahrenheit and their tank should be kept in that range as well. These Cichlids live in a rather acidic environment, with a natural pH of 5. In the wild, these Cichlids have plenty of aquatic plants for cover and in the aquarium, they also prefer this natural protection.
German Blue Ram Tankmates
These Cichlids are one of the most docile and if introduced to a tank with other Cichlids, will probably get picked on. It is best to group the German Blue Ram Cichlid with less aggressive fish such as other mild mannered dwarf Cichlids like Bolivian Rams or Cockatoo Dwarf Cichlids.
German Blue Rams are omnivores and will eat a variety of foods. They can be fed flake fish food and be fine, but for optimal health it is best to at least supplement with live foods such as blood worms or brine shrimp. In the case of breeding these beautiful fish, live food should be almost exclusively fed.
