The Gold Balloon Ram is a selectively bred variant of the German Blue Ram, which itself was selected for being shorter and more stout than its wild counterpart. The balloon variation makes even further changes to this standard body shape with an emphasis on making it taller in order to make room for larger bags of gold held within their trunk-like legs.)

Rams, best housed in groups of five or more individuals, enjoy living together within their social group. While they are peaceful towards other fish tank mates like tetras and guppies but will fight amongst themselves to establish a hierarchical order for the group. Because larger groups help spread out any potential fighting between rams it makes the environment easier on everyone involved as opposed to smaller tanks where fights may be intensified due to lack of space/territory being established by one another.

Rams prefer aquariums with sand, gravel or mixed substrate along with plenty of plants and driftwood so that they can create their own territory within an aquatic habitat which helps reduce conflicts alone while also creating interesting places throughout your home!

Because fish need vitamins and minerals to stay healthy, it is best to feed them a variety of food items. A few ideas are Meaty flakes, mini-pellets, freeze-dried worms or frozen brine shrimp. It’s important that they’re fed several times per day with no more than five minutes between each feeding session so the tank doesn’t get dirty since their waste will cause toxins in the water if not removed quickly enough!
