    I don't like any balloon fish; it causes their internal organs (especially the swim bladder) to deform and can lead to a lot of health problems (and with rams you've already got a hard to, keep delicate fish!).
     
    As for the long fins; I just think it makes the fish look out of proportion.
     
    The blue ram is my ultimate favourite fish; I think they're perfect just as they are :)

    100% two males. Again there is no reddish belly. Also shape and size indicates you got 2 males.

    On my research they live in a community of five in the wild, and can all get along.
    I have 3 in my tank
    The research I’ve done say that they will fight to develop a hierarchy situation then will all live happily together.

    Your missing out in having an amazing addition to your tank.
