Default My German Blue Ram

Caught the GBR bug.

Bought this aggressive fella on my first trip to Seaview during lunch time yesterday. I was informed the proximity of the shop to my office by a colleague.




Not the biggest or most colourful in the shop. But I like the big black spot.

My GBR album

The fella wasted no time. Exerts dominant over the two balloon rams I bought previously. Becomes the center piece of my tetra comm tank.

Thanks! Don't have the space to setup a nursery tank. So, not planning to get a female. I would be happy if it's able to survive till natural death.

From my research on GBR, it's known high death rate due to line breeding. Not a fish for beginner.

I've 2 GBR. Both males.

I notice the dominant GBR likes to swim close to the glass. That's one of the reasons it caught my eye in the tank with 10+ GBR in Seaview.

Fun watching it swimming from side to side. The other GBR stand tends to be guarding it's territory.

Thanks all! Been a month since it's with me. It's the boss of my comm tank.

The male dwarf cichlid would grow up to 7 cm, according to this article. But I've never seen that size in LFS. The female would be smaller.
