The Gold Ram Fish is a species of freshwater fish that is native to the South American Orinoco Basin and is widely cultivated in home aquariums. It is prized for its striking, iridescent golden coloration and its peaceful temperament.

Gold Ram Fish are small fish, typically reaching a maximum length of 2.5 inches (6.35 cm). They have an oval-shaped body that is laterally compressed, giving them a sleek and streamlined appearance. Their bright golden color is offset by a black spot on the base of their dorsal fin and a series of black stripes on their body.

Gold Ram Fish are peaceful and sociable fish that do well in community aquariums. They prefer a warm and slightly acidic water environment, with a temperature range of 78-82°F (25-28°C) and a pH range of 6.0-7.0. They are also very sensitive to water quality and require a well-maintained aquarium environment in order to thrive.

In the aquarium, Gold Ram Fish are active swimmers and do best in well-planted tanks that provide hiding places and plenty of room to swim. They also appreciate having other fish of their own species in the tank, as they are naturally social and enjoy the company of their own kind.

Gold Ram Fish are omnivores and will feed on a variety of foods, including small frozen or live foods, flake food, and algae wafers. They are also known for their active foraging behavior and will often spend time searching for food in the plants and decorations in the aquarium.

Overall, the Gold Ram Fish is a beautiful and peaceful species that is well-suited to the home aquarium. Its striking coloration, sociable nature, and hardiness make it a popular choice for aquarists of all levels of experience.
