Looking into getting a group of Electric Blue Rams or German Blue Rams to add to my breeding project.
Not sure which one yet.

Its official! 6 electric blue rams coming for breeding.

Here is a quick video ( not my own!) of the EBR that shows how beautiful this variety gets

Musical chairs around here:

Moved the 4.5 old dark/gold ram fry from the 30 gallon to the 60 gallon with my discus pair to give the fry more room to grow. The discus didn't mind in the least and the fry seem energized by a change of scenery- lol! Also, will be easier to get fry out of this tank when sell them because no more wood/rock for them to hide behind.

Soon as the EBR/GBR come, I will put this group in the 30 gallon took the 4.5 mo. fry from.

Then, will put the 1.5 month dark fry that are in my 10 gallon into my other 30 gallon and put a EBR/GBR pair in 10 gallon to breed.

Whew!
Would be so much easier to just buy another 10 gallon breeding tank.

Actually, it is not the EBR that I am getting from Tom, but an EBR/GBR hybrid. This is the picture from the Aquabid ad Tom put up. They' re really cool looking.

Supposed to be here today. Excited!

Here they are. This video does not do them justice-- they are like gleaming iridescent gems.

My next breeding project.

Spectacular fish! @coralbandit still breeds truly remarkable fish. Appropriate they're now in such an experienced and caring environment. Great success to come for sure.

Wow! That might be my favorite ram I've ever seen. The EB's are just a bit too much to my eye, but those have the subtle beauty of a GBR only with fresh batteries! If they were temperature compatible with shrimp, I'd drop what I'm doing and be placing an order right now.

Tom does. Flat out the best in breeding these fish. Im a novice breeder, but I learn that much more with each group.
One thing you will notice in the video is how aggressive they are. They are bullies in a small package.

I agree- my favorite as well. Its less of a blue color than the EBR's and more of a light blue glow. Subtle beauty- just like you said. If in the future you find room let me know, Ill have fry soon. [With any luck]
