The German Blue 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 Blue Ram stays small and can be a great addition to a peaceful tank environment. German Blue 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 German Blue 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.


German Blue Rams are native to South America and are found in the Orinoco River Basin in Venezuela and Colombia. Most Rams found in the hobby are tank bred however, and are more resilient to a wider variety of water conditions. Ram Cichlids do well with Bristlenose Plecos and most smaller tetras.
