WHY IS INBREEDING BAD FOR GERMAN BLUE RAMS?
In the wild, German Blue Ram’s immune system genes are continuously shuffled with diverse gene pools resulting in a mass combination of antibodies being produced. The more types of antibodies, the better the defense against the various invading germs and virus.

Inbreeding as well as careless backyard breeding often lead to poor immune systems in German Blue Rams because they lack the genetic diversity that’s needed for producing healthy amount of antibodies naturally.

We are devoted to constantly improve our non-inbred and hormone-free strains through careful bloodline/gene pool management and precise planning of selective breeding. One of the reasons why we breed and raise German Blue Rams exclusively is because our comprehensive breeding program truly requires our full undivided attention.


WHY IS HORMONE-INJECTION BAD FOR GERMAN BLUE RAMS?
Watch out! Many German Blue Rams are carelessly mass-produced and injected with hormones to force their colors.
  • They tend to die early as they are much less hardy.
  • While some are fertile, they are often sterile.
  • They have a much higher rate of carrying genetic defects and tend to produce unhealthy and disabled offspring.
  • Hormones tend to alter their personality from peaceful to aggressive and grumpy.
Hormone-injection practice weakens the specimens and reduces their lifespan. Our German Blue Rams are absolutely hormone-free!


HOW DO I AVOID HORMONE-INJECTED GERMAN BLUE RAMS?
  • Hormone-free German Blue Ram’s colors come in gradually with full colors emerging at age 6-8 months. If they are juveniles showing adult colors, they are hormone-injected.
  • German Blue Rams are shy and easily stressed. When they are under stress, their colors tend to fade temporarily as their natural physical response to blend in with environment and hide from predators. If the German Blue Rams are showing their best colors in situation where they are likely to be stressed (such as moving or change in environment), they are hormone-injected.
  • Hormone-free healthy German Blue Rams exhibit beautiful curves from their body to tail fin, and their fins would show stunning fluid movement as they swim. Hormone-injected German Blue Rams and their offspring often show physical defects such as tail fins being handicapped – looking tied up, showing no curves and exhibiting rigid movement.
  • Only buy from a trusted, reputable breeder or dealer
