Blue rams


Recommended Posts

For highly cultured ones we get from germany I'd say it's quite hard.

The krib on blue rams

I quote:

'Blue rams' can be sexed using a variety of characteristics. The males

are generally larger (most prominent in adults), have slightly longer

fins (dorsal) and lack the blue spangles in the black mid-lateral spot

found in the females. Wild fish are very easy to distingush, but the

cultured varieties may be a little harder, assuming both sexes are

present. If I were asked for one reliable difference, I would say the

blue spangles within the black mid-lateral blotch is the best method (it

also works on young fish and the cultured varieties).

Blue ram on right definite female, based on red in belly, fins and colour on spot. She is in nice condition (based on eye colour. I find if a fish is in good condition colour of eye is strong).

If I had to guess I would pick male, but wouldn;t put any money on it. Get more pictures and I will have a better guess.

Anyway I always have been over opinionated.
