    Jess,

    Are their different strains of German Blue rams. All three of my Males have black on their pelvic fins. Is this just because they are sill very young or do i have confused fish?

    heres a pic of one of my males, hes about 1.25" and his colors are much more vivid in real life. his yellows are starting to come out now!

    That is a beautiful male!!! Lovely!!!

    With the mass breeding some of the black on the pelvic fins on males is seen more frequently lately.... if you look though in males it is usually a very faded black / Grey whereas in females it will be jet black.

    I doubt it... once the coloring is there it is not likely to fade away but then anything is possible..stranger things have happened Keep me updated please if you have the time I would love to know ...

    Oh hey bushwhacker I missed this a few weeks ago. My male has faded black on his too. Like Jess said though it is faded out where the female is very black.
    We can be as honest as we are ignorant. If we are, when asked what is beyond the horizon of the known, we must say that we do not know.

    Hmmm, Hey Jess is it more reliable with the blue sheen not showing through the black on the males than no black on the pelvic fins?

    I looked and looked and looked at the LFS the other day, and they all had black on the fins (mind you they all looked pretty stressed with all of them having bars, so the colours weren't that great) but I noticed a couple that you couldn't see the blue on where the black spot would've been (they were faded out) but they definately had black on the pelvic fins!

    Actually this link that GabodAv posted show the male with really dark black on his fins too!

    Want to get a couple and want to check that I get one of each! LOL
