Red Ram Cichlid
Cich Red Ram (Microgeophagus altispinosa),
is an omnivore, and will consume a wide variety of foods. Freeze-dried bloodworms and tubifex, flake food, and both frozen and live brine shrimp and worms will make excellent food for these fish.
The Red Ram Cichlid, also called the Butterfly Ram and the Red Ram, is a social fish that will form pairs and often remains "faithful" to each other. The Red Ram Cichlid are golden brown in color with reddish highlights on the dorsal and caudal fins and pearly turquoise-blue highlights on the pelvic and anal fins. A black 'spot' is in the center of the body and a black line runs from the top of the eye to the bottom of the head.
The Red Ram Cichlid requires a tank of 30 gallons minimum. The tank should have several dense plant groups and plenty of open swimming space. The Red Ram Cichlid also requires a few caves in which to hide in and stones to spawn on. Being a peaceful fish, the Bolivian Ram makes a wonderful addition to the community tank, is compatible with other peaceful fish.
The Red Ram Cichlid is an egg layer that prefers soft to medium hardness, neutral pH and slightly raised water temperatures (77-82°F). Peat should be added to the water. The female will lay up to 200 eggs on stones and occasionally, in depressions. Both the male and female share the rearing of the fry, and it has been reported that they will take them into their mouths to protect them like a mouth brooder. Care should be taken so that the fry are not sucked into the filter.
