Introducing the Electric Blue Ram Dwarf Cichlid - A Stunning Addition to Your Aquarium!

Experience the mesmerizing beauty of the Electric Blue Ram Dwarf Cichlid (Mikrogeophagus ramirezi). With its vibrant electric blue coloration and compact size, this captivating fish will effortlessly enhance the visual appeal of your aquarium. Whether in a breeding mood or not, the Electric Blue Ram maintains its stunning hue, making it a constant delight to observe.

Originating from the shallow, heavily vegetated, slow-moving streams of Venezuela and Columbia, the Electric Blue Ram feels right at home amidst submerged branches, roots, and leaf litter. Recreate their natural habitat in your aquarium, providing them with a sandy bottom, driftwood, and a few rounded or flat rocks for breeding. Adding leaves to the bottom will not only mimic their environment but also offer them additional cover for comfort and security. To truly replicate their natural surroundings, consider staining the water with tannins, with Almond leaves serving as an excellent source of cover.

The Electric Blue Ram Dwarf Cichlid thrives in a warm environment, with temperatures ranging from 78 to 86 degrees Fahrenheit (25-30 degrees Celsius). They are active fish that exhibit their best colors when kept in small groups, creating a visually captivating spectacle. For added comfort, consider housing them alongside other small schools of Cardinal or Green Neons, providing them with a sense of security and safety.

To ensure the well-being of these stunning creatures, it is essential to maintain excellent water quality, especially if you have hopes of breeding them. We recommend a diverse diet consisting of ground Northfin flake foods, small Northfin pellets (including veggie, community, and bug pro variations), and frozen foods. The Electric Blue Rams also enjoy indulging in baby brine shrimp, a delicacy they can't resist.

At Flip Aquatics, we take pride in providing the highest level of care for our fish. With our 100% Live Arrival Guarantee on fish shipments, you can be confident in the health and vitality of your Electric Blue Ram Dwarf Cichlids when opting for the Overnight (1 Day) shipping option.

Electric Blue Ram Dwarf Cichlid

These Electric blue cichlids are now my favorite fish in my aquarium. Their colors are a stunning neon blue that changes with the light. Sometimes they look purple and sometimes with a green and purple tinge. I got 6 fish, two males and four females. I do find that the males chase the females but this is in a 22 gallon tank. Perhaps they need a bigger tank. So far there hasn’t been any fin damage and this is after 2 weeks. Keeping them well fed seems to pacify them. I would definitely purchase these again. They arrived beautifully packaged and very healthy.

Very interesting fish and not aggressive as I thought cichlids would be. Minds his own business in the 20 gal tank. Arrived quick and well packages overnight

Blue Ram

Beautiful fish. Arrived alive and healthy! Will continue to buy fish here!

Fun, active little cichlids

I ordered 2 of them a couple of months ago, they both arrived healthy and beautiful!! They have settled in really well and are super healthy and active! My only regret... I should of gotten a couple more! I used to keep much larger african cichlids in a very large tank, these little guys fill my *need* for having cichlids without being so large! Just a fun to watch and their color is beautiful!

So gorgeous!

I love my Ram! Beautiful coloration and seems very healthy!
