Ram is short for the species name “ramireze”, but also reminiscent of their tendency to butt heads like a terrestrial ram. These are beautiful fish whether captured bred for color, such as german blue rams, or wild such as Bolivian rams. They are peaceful, hardy, and get along with other species.
Wild caught rams appearance depends upon the region of the Amazon. Columbian Rams are very similar to the bred german rams, though slightly smaller. Wild rams are interesting since they will feature variations in behavior and appearance that only nature can account for.
