I have been waiting for a pair of German blue rams (Mikrogeophagus ramirezi) to spawn for a few months so I can get some video. They finally cooperated, and laid eggs a few inches from the front glass… and moved the larvae to a pit even closer! Rams are one of those species I return to again and again. I had not have any for four or five years, however, until I got this pair from OddBallFish.com to photograph for their website. OBF has some great rams! They also have nice gold and electric blue rams, and a lot of other great fish. Check them out.
Watch for the Repashy Superfood in the video. I placed a couple pieces near the nest before the fry were fully free swimming, and the parents picked a small piece up and dropped it dead center of the fry pile. The fry were picking on it! That is less than 6-hour free swimming fry picking on a food that is NOT alive. I was amazed… Repashy food is awesome.
