    Have any of you heard of a German Blue Balloon RAM. I found it at my local aquarium shop. He said they are no harder than regualr rams. They are about the size of a nickel.... woops I uploaded my Bettas and Ram too. They are the most expensive fish I ever bought so, I pray I do not kill them!! rams 001.jpg

    they're breed for the defomity, and a lot of people are against them.

    balloon mollies are a deformity too, im not against those. I see no problem in breeding these guys for the home aquarium. I think the problem would be if people were releasing them into the wild AND/OR breeding them to NON-deformed Rams. Let me know how yours acclimate, i have been looking at getting a pair.

    Theyre also known as Angel Rams. Yours look much better than the ones my LFS was offering.
