    Default Some Pitch Black Ram Pics

    These 3 pics are from 3 different spawns from the same pair. This is my pair that produces only black fry.

    very interesting parents.... the black is all encompassing in the fins too... with little in the way of blue or red coloring in the fins. They really are just totally black.

    My friend Tom (CoralBandit) provided me with excellent breeding stock. This pair comes from the original pair he sent me.

    Gorgeous. I'm actually super interested in purchasing some dither fish for my 125 setup in a few months. I would love to learn how to grow out rams properly to eventually put into the 125 with the discus.

    What I'm saying is I'm totally down to purchase some if you are ever selling Liz!

    Great looking rams Liz!! Don’t think you’ll have a problem getting rid of them! By me in the local stores they are few and far between and asking discus prices for them. I too have some of corals. Mine have the red in the fins. Beautiful fish! Solid black is something else!!

    Those do look great Liz !
    They are in high demand and seems known sellers are few and far between .
    I just had an inquiry from New Zealand .They stated they can not get any black rams at all there !
    If you don't or can't get rid of them all possibly I can help you out ..
    You have a couple months still ,but I would not discount the thought of listing them as an honest pre sale and get your list forming ..

    Gosh guys, I usually sell these as pairs on AB. It'll be another 4-6 weeks before that old. Let me think about selling them young and I'll PM you both.

    I knew Tom had Black Rams... I just hadn't seen a photo that showed his 'Pitch Black' rams before. They really are neat. Are the fins really almost solid black as well? If so, that is different than the Blue and the Red that other breeders are striving for in the fins.... a really unique look you have there Tom/Liz!! Awesome.

    Black rams are near impossible to get where I'm at - I've only seen them once, and I had to travel about 2-2.5 hours up to Indianapolis to a shop to see them. I first saw them watching the Aquarium Co-Op Youtube videos, but those look like they have quite a bit of GBR left in them (fins are still very orange/yellow). I then found Tom's video of his fishroom tour somehow and his look great.

    Liz, your spawns look great. I'd die to get my hands on a few pairs and be able to grow them out to potentially breed and provide some stock to the one local store I have here and around the metro area.

    Shoot me a PM. I'm selling some of the batch in the first pic unsexed if you want some. When the are sexually mature I'll be listing them as pairs on AB.

    Hi Liz,

    Thanks for the offer, but unfortunately I cannot get more aquariums up and running. I'll be moving in the next few months (depending on if the wife and I can agree on a place lol!) and wouldn't be able to give the group a worthwhile shot without being upended as soon as they get settled in. Plus, I'd like to avoid having to tear down several tanks for the move. Hopefully you or Tom will have some PBRs in the near future once we've moved, since the move is intended to be into our "forever home".

    I'll keep a lookout here and on AB in the future. Best of luck to you!
