Well after seeing all of the pictures/videos of "Discus" and "Angelfish" tanks, I couldn't resist anymore - and set up a new tank for a couple of Angelfish and a couple of German Blue Rams!!! :happy: Plan for the tank is a low-tech planted tank. Short little video, still waiting on another piece of driftwood and a few plants & then we get to figure out what else to put in there to fill in a little!!! (All suggestions accepted!!)

***If someone could verify that I have a Male and Female ram, I would appreciate it!!!***

Here's how to tell the difference. The difference in the black spot is the easiest way to be sure.

Body size: Female's are smaller than males.
Body shape - Females have a pointed head. Male have more rounded head.
Pectoral fins - Male pectoral fins are shorter than female's.
Spot below dorsal - Males have a solid black spot with no reflective blue scales. Females have reflective scales inside the black spot.

For verification, can you post larger pictures of the fish? I watched the video but it's not close enough to be sure. Try to get a picture of each showing the reflective blue scales on top of, around or inside the black dot under the dorsal fin.

Here's a good video an how to tell them apart.
