Sexing the Electric blue rams Question

  1. wannj Initiate Member

    I have what I believe to be is a male German blue ram, and a female electric blue ram, my question, when it comes to sexing the electric blue, do the same tips come into play, such as the top part of the fin. males have a elongated second fin when it comes to the German Blue Ram, but is it the same for the German Electric Blue Ram? I cant get a picture as of right now, and they are both new to the tank as of today. so if I do got a pair, and they make a good match, and take to each other, can they be cross bread?

    They're the same fish, just different colours, so yes the usual sexing methods apply.

    Btw, females also have an elongated 2nd ray, so this method doesn't work with young fish. For me the easiest way to sex them is by shape.
