The Ram Cichlid is known as being one of the best “beginner” cichlids in the hobby due to its ease of maintenance, beautiful colors, and peaceful nature. They are easy eaters and will readily accept almost anything fed to them. They do not have very stringent water condition requirements and mostly just require routine water changes, but are sensitive to sudden changes in water conditions.

Foods and Feeding

The Ram Cichlid is an omnivore whose diet in the wild consists of plant material and small organisms. In the aquarium it can be fed a mix of meaty foods that are live or frozen; such as brine shrimp, blood worms, white worms, chopped earthworms, cyclopeeze, and artemia.

Features of the Ram cichlid

This delicate oval shape ram cichlid is adorned with long pointed fins and a bright, snappy color patterning. Its body coloring is yellow towards the front and blends into a whitish-blue moving back. It has a orangish red on the forehead and edging the yellowish fins, with females having a pinkish orange belly. It is accented with a curved black line running vertically down the head, right through the eye, and can have black blotching on the front of the dorsal fin. The “Golden Ram” cichlid, a naturally occurring color morph, displays more yellow on its head, more white on the body, and orangish red coloring on the forehead and tips of the fins.

The Ram Cichlid is a small colorful fish with an oval shaped body and pointed fins and tail. Mature males develop more pointed dorsal fins than females and also grow larger at about 2 inches (5 cm) in length in the aquarium, though they can attain a length of about 2 3/4″ (7 cm) in nature. This fish can live up to about 4 years.

What to know about feeding aquarium fish

In nature, fish eat whenever they are hungry and the food is available. If food sources are plentiful, they will eat several times a day. On the other hand, if food sources are scarce, they might go for days between meals. For this reason, fish are very opportunistic and will eat whenever they have a chance.

Regardless of one or two feedings, the key is to keep each feeding very small. Do Not overfeed your fish. Whenever in doubt, the best practice is to underfeed your fish. There are a lot of health concerns related to overfeeding your fish.
