On reading the post title I was working my mind in overdrive trying to figure out what a petco ram might be, some new monstrosity. But I then saw you bought it at Petco, so it might be any one of several varieties. Some, notably the "balloon" ram, are genetically deformed, but others like the gold ram or german blue ram are colour varieties achieved by selective breeding as far as I can recall. You will find some info in our profile of the Blue Ram [click on the shaded name]. Spawning is the same whatever variety it may be.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

I got a blue ram but the lady said the fish in it were a different strain of rams but to me the looked completely different so I was wondering if any body knew. Also I was wondering if the hormones maid them sterile or not.
