Help sexing my Rams please…

SamEvans

Hi guys,

I picked up a “pair” of rams from my LFS. Can anyone help me sex them? Thanks ever so much!

You have two females.

Have you tried taking them out to dinner first?

In all seriousness, I found this article from a quick search, maybe it'll be of some help? Breeding German Blue Rams | Tropical Fish Hobbyist Magazine




That'll certainly throw a spanner into the works!

Thanks for the help guys! I suspected 2 females but just wanted someone more experienced to clarify. I have read a ton of articles and come to that conclusion but always unsure when the LFS says it’s a male and a female…

I only have experience with Cockatoo Dwarf Cichlid but, if these similar, you could always go and get a male and he should be able to live with these two peacefully. The issues come with you have two males in the same tank.

Note: Research whether that's accurate for your Chichlids, and how to spot a male :)

Alternatively, I assume they'd give your money back if you wanted to get a male instead of one of the females?

So I called into the LFS and they asked me how the new ones had settled and I said I think it’s 2 females. They were really cool and gave me a “male” free of charge. I felt bad being given a free fish so I bought a ton of plants. Here’s a pic of the “male”

It looks somewhat thin, but promising. After it settles in it will be easer to accurately sex.

Yeah I agree it looks thin. It seems happy and swimming and feeding normally. Hopefully it can put on some weight. It has coloured up well which is promising too!
