The Bolivian Ram as it is known, will grow to a larger size, up to 4 inches in length versus the German Ram. The males will have an extended first and second ray of the dorsal fin. Coloration is similar to the Blue Ram, with a little less blue highlights and not quite as red in the belly region. The belly is more of an orange/red color. The Altispinosa is best kept in pairs, with lots of plant/wood cover for seclusion. Natural conditions are soft water with a neutral to acidic pH value. While the Bolivian Ram will lay eggs on a smooth surface, there are reports of the parents using mouth-brooding on occasions of threat to the fry. A rather peaceful fish, this Ram can be kept with most Community fish and will accept most prepared aquarium foods.
