I was nervous when I got mine because everyone said they were so hard to keep...I haven't had a single issue. I am pretty good about keeping a clean tank...but I'm far from perfect! Mine are spawning right this moment...or trying too...lol. They aren't very good parents...usually make a snack of them. They keep trying tho!

Rams are easy. I have 2 Long Fin German Blue's and 2 Bolivians with 5 Angels in the same 75 gallon tank. I also have ghost shrimp and they swim all over the place and even in front of them. I have ZERO aggression. Everyone is happy and runs to the top when you walk by wanting food. I also have 8 Denison's Barbs as well. Everyone has adapted to eat fast and grab all you can with those Barbs or you won't get to eat lol. Just keep your PH and temp constant and do your water changes. i also have lots of plants and everyone has room to make an area of the tank their own.

The can be. In my experience they don't like nitrates and need the water to be stable. Just keep clean water and you should be fine. Bolivian rams are hardier and are good rams. They also colour out nice to
