A lovely fish to have, more colourful really than the picture here though not as showy as the german blue ram. Mine are extremely peaceful, even to each other, the occasional show of fins and gills is all. It says here that they occasionally eat tetras, I can't see that happening though by looking at mine! An excellent fish though they can be shy.

I had a nice male Bolivian Ram, who lives in a community tank and is a very beautiful fish. Yesterday I added in a female, and once she settled in their colours came out brilliantly. Definitely have two, as it makes the already great fish, even more brilliant.

I picked up two bolivian rams last week and they settled in nicely in a few days, they really are beautiful fish and most pictures don't do them justice! They're peaceful too, don't even blink at my neon tetras. I love these guys!They are a little bit jumpy if a door suddenly slams shut or something though. All in all a great fish!

I love my Bolivian Ram :) Easy to take care of and he adds a lot to my community tank.

C. A, Pappas: Try Pruess Pets in Lansing, MI. I got mine there and they take wonderful care of their animals.

I had a wonderful Bolivian Ram Cichlid in my community tank for a couple years. While not aggressive, he did keep some annoying Red Glass Barbs in line and became the peace keeper of the tank. He was one of the nicest fish in my tank. Unfortunately, I lost him when the filter in my tank malfunctioned and although I would love to replace him, I have not been able to find any wet pet stores in my area (Genesee County, Michigan) who carry Bolivian Rams.
