The ram cichlid, Mikrogeophagus ramirezi, is a species of freshwater fish endemic to the Orinoco River basin, in the savannahs of Venezuela and Colombia in South America. The species has been examined in studies on fish behaviour and is a popular aquarium fish, traded under a variety of common names, including ram, blue ram, German gold, ram, German blue ram, Asian ram, butterfly cichlid, Ramirez's dwarf cichlid, dwarf butterfly cichlid and Ramirezi.
The ram (Mikrogeophagus ramirezi) is a South American species discovered in 1948. It occurs naturally in the Rio Orinoco river basin of Los Llanos, a vast tropical grassland plain situated to the East of the Andes in Venezuela and Colombia. It's also found in the upper parts of the Orinoco river delta in Venezuela. The wild form is the spectacularly multicolored ram.
The gold ram is one of the numerous strains developed by humans, mainly in Asia. These fish have often been (excessively) line bred for years to emphasize certain colors - like xanthistic gold - or shape, causing problems with fertility, poor resistance to infestation and general weakness.
