Bolivian Rams, also known as Bolivian Butterfly Cichlids or Bolivian Butterfly Rams, are a beautiful and peaceful species of cichlid native to the river basins of Bolivia and Brazil. These fish are a popular choice for community aquariums due to their peaceful nature and stunning coloration.


Bolivian Rams prefer a well-planted aquarium with plenty of hiding spots and open swimming areas. They require a tank size of at least 30 gallons and can grow up to 3 inches in length. These fish are known for their gentle disposition and can coexist with other peaceful fish, such as tetras, corydoras, and other small cichlids.


Bolivian Rams are omnivores and will eat a variety of foods, including flakes, pellets, frozen or live foods, and vegetables. They also enjoy occasional treats of small insects or worms. Providing a varied and balanced diet will help to ensure their overall health and vitality.


One of the most striking features of Bolivian Rams is their vibrant and bold coloration. They exhibit a range of colors including blue, yellow, orange, and red, which can be arranged in different patterns across their body, fins, and tail. Their unique and vibrant appearance makes them a beautiful addition to any aquarium.
