The gold ram does not exist in the wild, but its relative, the blue ram, does. Blue rams are native to the tropical grassland plains of Venezuela and Colombia, just east of the Andes mountain range; these regions are highly influenced by the wet and dry seasons.
These areas are also rich in plant diversity, giving the blue rams plenty of natural hiding places. Because of the low water flow and high amounts of detritus, these waters are usually a little more acidic with pH ranging between 5.2 and 6.7.
Since Rams have a relatively short natural life span of a little over 2 years, they mature from juveniles to adults rather quickly. The short lifespan of this species is also a factor when selecting individuals for purchase as the larger more colorful specimens tend to be older individuals.
Older specimens also go through a form of menopause where they no will no longer spawn, thus hobbyists looking to breed need to select young specimens.
