German Black/Blue Ram


The German Black/Blue Ram is a selectively bred variant of the Blue Ram, which is a color variant of the original wild Ram.

Rams are best housed in groups of 5 or more individuals, as they would live in social groups in the wild. While they are peaceful towards other tank mates, they fight amongst themselves to establish a group hierarchy. Larger groups of fish help to spread out their in-fighting, which makes it easier on the group as a whole. They prefer aquariums with sand, gravel, or mixed substrate, plenty of plants, and driftwood. Rocks, live plants, and driftwood also work to create territory within the aquarium so that individuals can establish their own space within the tank.
