Electric Blue Rams, also known as German Blue Rams or Butterfly Cichlids, are a stunning and peaceful species of cichlid native to the rivers and streams of South America. They are a popular choice for aquarium enthusiasts due to their vibrant coloration and gentle temperament.


Electric Blue 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 2.5 inches in length. These fish are known for their peaceful disposition and can coexist with other peaceful fish, such as tetras, corydoras, and other small cichlids.


Electric Blue 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 Electric Blue Rams is their stunning electric blue coloration, which is accented by bright orange and black markings. Their unique and vibrant appearance makes them a beautiful addition to any aquarium.
