    Talk to me. Can you tell me what the differences is? I know someone is going to say they are the same fish but different colors but is one hardier than the other is one larger? Any information you can give me I would appreciate. Thank you.

    They are generally pretty close to the same. German blue rams are a little hardier in my opinion, but not by much. Plus they are a lot cheaper and I think they are prettier than the electric rams.

    + 1 to TreBall's post. They really are the same species of fish, unlike bolivians which are a species of their own, the Electric Blue and Gold variations are just color morphs.

    As far as whether either is hardier than the other, I can't say for certain as I don't have any experience with Electric Blues, but I would imagine that they would be more sensitive simply due to the over-breeding and inbreeding that goes into creating new color strains like that.
