This is my first time with Bolivian rams or any other cichlid aside from angelfish. I spent a good time looking at them at the store and brought home the calmest two that I believed were a male and a female. I've never sexed rams before but I looked at the sticky on what to look for as well as googled a few other bits of information. The rams at the store were all fairly small and I didn't see any that had vents. I was hoping someone here could verify the genders of my 2 rams. They're getting along fairly well so regardless of the gender I don't think I'll be returning either of them.
