The Dark Night Ram Cichlid (Mikrogeophagus ramirezi), also known as the Ram Cichlid, is an exciting addition to any tank, especially a community tank. Unlike many other species of cichlid, the German Black Ram stays small and can be a great addition to a peaceful tank environment. Black Rams are generally peaceful fish and do well with other peaceful species that enjoy similar water conditions. We cannot guarantee the sex of the fish.

General Care

The Dark Night Ram Cichlid will grow to between 2 and 3 inches and live around 2 to 3 years. They are a mid-level to bottom dweller that requires at least a 20-gallon tank, with a PH from 5.0 to 7.2 and water on the softer side. Ram Cichlids like the water on the warmer side. I keep mine around 80-82 F (26-28 c)  They are omnivores but prefer more protein than veggies. I feed Dr. Bassler Flake, live baby brine shrimp, and a variety of Dr. Bassleer pellets including Regular, Acai, and Garlic.


The Dark Night Ram Cichlid does not exist in the wild. It was selectively bred by Danziger Discus Farms in Isreal.  They started to cross-breed dark color forms of the German Blue Ram, and once they realized there were some black traits, they selectively bred the best specimens until they developed the Dark Knight Ram. Ram Cichlids do well with Bristlenose Plecos and most smaller tetras. Check out my YouTube Channel YouTube Channel to see my fish room and other fish for sale.
