Baloon Blue Ramirezi Cichlid (Mikrogeophagus ramirezi”) is a very beautiful, tank-raised variant of its species. This particular variant is known for the incredible neon blue coloration that covers almost its entire body in both males and females. Rams and other  cichlids are very popular among aquarists due to their vivid coloration, small size, and interesting personalities. The cichlids are much less aggressive than most larger cichlids.

Baloon Blue Ramirezi  Cichlid will thrive in an aquarium with a sandy substrate and plenty of refuge such as clay pots, driftwood, and rock formations. It is an excellent candidate for the planted aquarium, but it also needs a fair amount of open space. This cichlid is generally compatible with other peaceful fish as long as it has plenty of space. Territoriality is typically at its peak during spawning. Dwarf shrimp and other small, delicate invertebrates should not be kept with the Baloon Blue Ramirezi  Cichlid, but more durable, larger shrimp and snails could possibly make good tankmates in a large enough aquarium. If spawning is desired, tankmates of other species should be kept to a minimum or avoided altogether.

Feeding is simple for the unfussy Baloon Blue Ramirezi  Cichlid. High-quality dry, frozen, and live meaty foods will all be readily accepted. Quality and variety are the keys to a diet that will ensure that this fish maintains optimal health and coloration.

We are offering locally bred juvenile/sub-adult specimens of this magnificent species. They are already displaying superb coloration, but will be even more colorful as they mature. We are not currently offereing sexed specimens, but may do so in the future if possible. 

What We Like About This Fish:

  • Beautiful neon blue coloration across most of the body in both males and females
  • Hardy with plenty of personality
  • Possible to breed in the aquarium
  • Compatible with many other species in a spacious tank 

RECOMMENDED TANK PARAMETERS:

  • Temperature 78.8° - 86° F (26° - 30° C), although 82°+ F (28°+ C) is optimal
  • pH:  6.0 - 7.5, tank-raised specimens are more flexible regarding pH level
  • KH:  0 - 10 KH
  • Minimum tank size:  20-30 gallons for a small group, but a larger aquarium should be used for a community of several species 

CARE GUIDELINES:

  • Diet:  Carnivorous. A variety of high-quality dry, frozen, and live meaty foods is necessary for optimal health and coloration.
  • Social behavior:  Congregates loosely in groups. Males can be territorial when attempting to spawn and females are very protective of their eggs during spawning.
