    Hi

    Thanks eros111

    Yes I still breed Rams.
    I dont have any Electric blues available at the moment. I only recently started on a new Electric blue line.
    The stock of Electric blue Rams seen around do not impress me much. They are blue, but the "Electricity" of the blue has gone missing.
    I went about it in a somewhat deconstructed manner and "redeveloped" an Electric blue line.
    I post a few photos of where the line is now. I have unfortunately battled a bit of late with pairs eating eggs. I now have a pair of Electrics guarding about 100 fry.
    I also have some fry from a revitalized German Blue line. 9dd5cf251c28f4514e2fecfc7982e65f.jpg420c31f89fd0a9bfafa9df7cd6918e88.jpg

    @Captainpms

    Thank you.
    I have not spent a great deal of time on the Electric blues. I guess its relevant to take into account that most of the lines I now breed I have worked with for many years. Nearly a decade
    Against that background the time spent on this Electric blue line is little.
    To me an Electric blue Ram should have prominent black edges to pelvic and Dorsal fins. It should have a bright yellow "flag" which sits just behind the extended black rays on the dorsal, and ideally it should have an almost olive-green coloured head area.
    It is nearly impossible to find nowadays, and that is my goal with these. You can see the head area of the ones in the earlier posted photos are a golden base, and I will hopefully have the darker base in the next generation. They at 1.5cm now so no colour yet.

    Ive always tried to breed for very specific traits in all my Rams
    Body shape, a very specific head shape, very strong and prominent dorsal ray extension, and then of course good colour expression.
    Here are some photos of the other Rams I breed
