Dwarf German Black Ram Cichlid
Microgeophagus ramirezi var Black
aka: Dark Knight Ram Cichlid, Black Devil Ram, Midnight Rams
(Shipping at 1”+)
All Black Rams are captive-bred. The color form doesn’t exist in the wild. Black Rams are the result of a long, expensive breeding project carried out by Danziger Discus Farms in Tel Aviv, Israel. They started to cross-breed dark color forms of the German Blue Ram, and once they realized there were some black traits, they selectively bred the best specimens until they developed the Dark Knight Ram.
Their fins can still have the characteristic orange color of regular German Blue Rams, and some individuals still show the blue spots! This is still the correct fish!
Rare new beauties you must own if you love Rams! The Dwarf German Black Rams are tranquil, omnivores that are the perfect addition to any aquarium! They make a perfect first fish for beginner owners because of the easy care!
They are not picky eaters and can be easily spawned. They flourish in soft waters, but can be adaptable. Sand is preferred over rocks at the bottom of the tank.
Dwarf Rams are the most popular of the Cichlids. Originally from Germany, our Black Rams are healthy, tame, and handfed.
Stocking your tank with a colony ensures a happier life for these fish, especially when breeding them. They need potential candidates to choose as a mate because not all will like each other.
Requirements for aquarium upkeep include:
• Temp: at least 80°F
• pH Range 5-6.5
