    I am looking at adding either German Blues or Electric Blues to my 55 gallon. I'm wondering if anyone can tell me the significant differences between the two, benefits of one over the other, etc. Thank you!

    There both the same. The electric has just been bred for that color. They like warm water like 78-82*.

    Thanks! I wasn't sure if there was something temperament wise that may make them different? I read that they are prone to sickness due to over breeding. True?

    I think the GBR are overall a healthier longer living ram .
