Electric Blue Rams, scientifically known as Microgeophagus ramirezi, are stunning additions to tropical aquariums, admired for their vibrant coloration and intriguing behavior. Originating from South America, these cichlids exhibit a striking electric blue hue that intensifies with proper care, making them a focal point in any aquatic display.

Creating an optimal habitat for Electric Blue Rams involves a well-planted aquarium with soft, sandy substrate to mimic their natural environment. Provide plenty of hiding spots such as caves, driftwood, and plants to help them feel secure. Keep the water temperature between 78-85°F (26-29°C) and maintain a slightly acidic to neutral pH level.

Electric Blue Rams are omnivores, and their diet should consist of high-quality flake or pellet foods supplemented with live or frozen options like bloodworms, brine shrimp, or daphnia. Offering a varied diet helps promote their health and vibrant coloration.

Regular water changes and efficient filtration are essential for maintaining water quality and supporting the well-being of Electric Blue Rams. These peaceful cichlids thrive in pairs or small groups, exhibiting interesting behaviours and interactions within the aquarium.

With their stunning appearance and relatively peaceful nature compared to other cichlids, Electric Blue Rams are a popular choice for aquarists seeking colourful and engaging fish for their tropical setups.
