Bolivian Ram | Microgeophagus altispinosa

Introducing Bolivian Rams: Stunning, Peaceful, and Colorful Addition to Your Aquarium!

Enhance the beauty of your freshwater tank with the exquisite Bolivian Rams (Microgeophagus altispinosa). These peaceful cichlids are sure to captivate your attention with their stunning coloration and mellow temperament. Perfect for community fish tanks, they add a vibrant touch to any aquatic setting while coexisting harmoniously with other species.

The Bolivian Ram is a unique fish that grows up to 3 inches in length, making it a captivating centerpiece for your aquarium. For their optimal well-being, we recommend a minimum tank size of 20 gallons to accommodate a small group, allowing them to thrive and exhibit their full potential.

Maintaining a water temperature between 72 and 79 degrees Fahrenheit (22-26 degrees Celsius) is crucial to ensure the health and happiness of these magnificent creatures. With proper care, they can live an average lifespan of 4 years, rewarding you with their beauty and presence.

While Bolivian Rams are peaceful and won't disturb the substrate, it's important to note that they may view smaller, peaceful fish as potential food. To maintain a harmonious community, it's advisable to select similarly sized fish as tankmates.

At Flip Aquatics, we prioritize the well-being of our fish. Choose the Overnight (1 Day) shipping option to benefit from our 100% Live Arrival Guarantee, ensuring your Bolivian Rams arrive in optimal condition.

Feeding our Bolivian Rams is a delight. We offer them a balanced diet comprising frozen foods such as daphnia, baby brine, cyclops, and Bloodworms. Additionally, they enjoy live foods like baby brine and black worms, along with a mix of high-quality NorthFin flake foods.

Unleash the beauty and tranquility of Bolivian Rams in your aquarium today! Order now and witness the vibrant colors and peaceful nature these fish bring to your aquatic haven.

Bolivian Ram

The Bolivian ram arrived in great condition and he is the perfect tank mate. He plays well with others and his little whiskers are adorable. I am very happy with this gentle fish.

Cool fish

The Bolivian ram I got came in healthy and acclimated to his new tank in no time. He is alway out and about. He is very chill and easy to feed and take care of. I've made three orders of live animals from Flip Aquatics with no issues at all.

So cute and healthy !

I just got two bolivan rams and at first they were glass surfacing alot due to the new environment but now they are more content and love swimming around, I put them in the same tank and they are loving it. Very cute and they've gotten so much bigger since I've received them and it's only been a few days! Very healthy fish.
