Regular ones. 4 cm in size.
What drives me crazy is that I've never seen rams like those showing a lot of shiny speckles and deep blossoming pink on female rams.
I bought lots of rams before but the previous ones are quite poor and don't last long.
These new ones are quite happy and are always seen swimming together. I have 6 of them.

What do you think of these rams?


How do you sex rams?

Eddie, I'll sum it up here.
How to:
Belly colors-Females in good condition have heavy pink bellies. Males are more of yellow but can show a faint shade of pink.
Finnage-Males have more pointed rear end of their dorsal fins.
Black Spots-The small blue spots tend to cover the black spots in females whereas males have them around the black spot.
Size-Males tend to be bigger than the females.

In your lfs tank, males tend to spar while females watch but in some cases, females also tend to spar with each other.

Furthermore, rams these days tend to be less sexually dimorphic with females lacking the pink bellies. And in some cases, there are farmed fish being injected with hormones thus the resulting entire brood are males.

Eddie, the rams in your pic seem to be all males. Were they induced with hormones?
Rams these days tend to be less sexually dimorphic so sexing them may not be that easy as it used to be.

I will lock this thread and start anew after several flip-flops on my stocking list due to several issues.

Hopefully I will be able to gather more pics and make new updates.:)
