Woot! My fish are in a sticky... I feel honored Thank you everyone for the great comments.. just glad I can give a little to this great community
Skarloeysmum - darkening is usually a sign of stress and ... the stripes also... I am not sure what is stressing them. After a waterchange it is normal.
I will post some pics of Rams at different ages tomorrow - at the young age of 6 months they already very much look like adult rams including the coloration except they are still tiny.

Well here goes... the developement of baby rams in pictures. Please remember a lot has to do with water paramters and food...with some breeders it may take 6-7 months with others 3 months to a sexable size and coloring. These foto's are from a great breeder - Miquel in the Netherlands.

2 and a half months
3 Months - the more dominant and larger Rams are already on color
If you move the larger more dominant Rams who are already on color... more of the smaller Rams will take over the dominant role and color up faster
Hope you guys enjoy this Any questions fire away ...
