The Black-Blue Ramirezi is an incredibly popular freshwater fish that can be found in the Orinoco River basins of South America. What makes these small cichlids so special is their black-blue melanin pigment which contrasts vividly against their environment and gives them a striking coloration. These peaceful and shy fish form pairs or small groups when young and become territorial when breeding, making them ideally suited for a lightly planted community tank with slower moving currents. They require good water quality and may benefit from the addition of Blackwater extract to replicate their natural habitat, which can even stimulate breeding activity in mixed sexes.
