Bolivian RamMikrogeophagus altispinosus
The Bolivian Ram is a good alternative to the more colourful, but also more demanding, Ram or Butterfly Cichlid. These fish are peaceful, robust, and make an excellent aquarium fish for a general community or dwarf cichlid community. The fish form pairs and are good parents. Provide hiding spots amongst densely planted areas. More robust than most dwarf cichlids.
