Frequently Asked Questions

Are German Blue Rams Bottom Feeders?

German Blue Rams are often referred to as bottom dwellers due to their tendency to stay in the bottom regions of the tank. However, this doesn’t make them bottom feeders in the traditional sense. Rams do graze on the substrate’s surface but are not specifically adapted to hoover up leftover feed or clean the tank bottom.

German Blue Rams enjoy a wide variety of foods including flakes, pellets, as well as live or frozen foods. They will often forage near the bottom, but they’re more than happy to eat anywhere in the water column. Always ensure a proper, balanced diet for these colorful species to ensure their health and keep their stunning shades vibrant.
