    Looks like a blue ram to me. I have a German blue ram and he looks very similar, he just has a black spot on his shoulder. I love mine, he's in a tank on my kitchen table and we have staring contests at breakfast. :)

    I believe so. Its definitely a ram. Check out this article but don't take it as gospel.

     

    This forum has a lot of Ram fans.

    I've heard they're really finicky about water quality but I've never had a problem. (Yet) he's a hilarious boy, so much personality.

    The german blue ram needs water above 78f while the zebra danios and neon tetras need water below 75f
