The German Gold Ram is a beautiful color variation of Mikrogeophagus ramirezi. It is a social fish that will form pairs and often remain "faithful" to each other. German Gold Rams have a gold body with hints of pink, orange, and red.The German Gold Ram requires a tank of 20 gallons, minimum. The tank should have several dense plant groups and plenty of open swimming space. The German Gold Ram will also need a few caves in which to hide in and stones to spawn on. Being a peaceful fish, the German Gold Ram makes a wonderful addition to the community tank. However, if kept in an aquarium that lacks hiding places for this fish, they may become aggressive toward small tank mates.
