I know the smaller is a female it's hard to see in the vid but she has beautiful pink belly it's the larger one that has me going back and forth. Thanks in advance everyone

Male....... males have a "spike" in the front of the dorsal......also, 2 females or especially 2 males would be fighting......& I think the females vent is out....... :whistle:

WATER CHANGES ARE THE LIFEBLOOD OF THIS HOBBY. IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE SO OR SIMPLY DON'T FEEL LIKE DOING THEM, RE-HOME YOUR FISH, SELL YOUR AQUARIUM & FIND ANOTHER HOBBY, AS YOU WILL FAIL UTTERLY, COMPLETELY, & MISERABLY.

We have a pair in my daughters tank and they are a little bigger and her male has very long spikes on his dorsal fin and very long pectoral fins also and the false eye has no iridescent markings on it. Now the one in my sons tank is a little smaller he has the same look except the false eye sometimes has some iridescent markings on it and the spike isn't nearly as long. Even though he has never shown any pinkish coloring on the belly like you would find in females it's causing me to keep thinking male. Thanks again Jack

Anytime, man. I think this pair in the video may breed for you soon....... B)

I may have to get a pair, I always liked having Rams......I have a 10GL I'm not doing anything with, but trying to find females in my area can be tricky.

I have a breeding pair in a 20 gallon I love them but to get the eggs to fertilize and hatch you have to use peat water or ro water, honestly just to keep them alive for any amount of time you really need warm soft low ph water they are really quite sensitive. Bolivian rams are pretty cool if you can get those, they get a little bigger and have the personality of an oscar in a 2-3 in body they dont get as pretty but are ALOT less sensitive to ph and hardness and they dont need the 84º water
