A popular dwarf cichlid, Mikrogeophagus altispinosus can be found in various rivers of Brazil and Bolivia. Commonly known as Bolivian rams, they are colorful and a joy to watch. Reaching a little over 2 inches when fully grown, M. altispinosus can easily be housed in tanks as small as 20 gallons. Except when breeding, rams are very peaceful and get along well with other tankmates. Due to water condition requirements it is best to keep them with other South American cichlids.
