Bwiskered, this ones got your name all over em!   They are pretty cool looking if you ask me, a lot better looking then many of the other man made ones.

Your right they are nice. I wonder how long before they are available. I'm not too impressed by the dark blue strain brought in by one dealer.

The ones at Fanatics are a deep solid blue and do not appear to have any other colours such as the picture of the Black Rams. The Black Rams may be a colour strain developed in Israel.

I picked up a pair at Finatics almost 3 weeks ago.  The female is as black as the picture but the male is a bit lighter. I have about 50 fry now a week old. Hope to get a few solid black breeders from them. The strain is called Dark Knight.

At 5 weeks old they are about a half inch long and vary in shades from black to normal. I will selective breed the darkest and try to improve the strain. I have 2 younger spawns now as well and they also show some much darker than others even at a small to tiny size.

I think it was Joseph itzkovich who developed or was part of developing them
He has a few farm going Israel, Thailand and India
Been around since at least 2014-2015 is when I saw them in Israel

The Dark Knight Rams that are available are coming from Danziger Discus in Israel. They also sell the so called Albino Altum a cross bred fish that I found to be unspawnable.

That's odd
Maybe they're like mules

Ive never even heard of that strain

They have some weird fish there because at one point they weren't able to get much variety so have done some odd stuff with what the could get

The prices would also make you think you're buying diamonds lol

The angels could be a test tube cross as the family has scientists working for their main business of selling plant cuttings worldwide.
