    I have just switched my 60 gallon saltwater tank to a freshwater tank.
    i was thinking about getting a pair of german blue rams.
    how can you tell which one is a male and which one is a female?

    Freshwater is not my strong suite, but why did you switch?

    No idea, but that is one cool looking fish. Looks kinda like a Cardinal and a Chromis crossbred.

    The males dorsal fin is longer, the female is less colorful and has a pinkish cast to the belly.
