i would give you one piece of advice that someone else gave to me. rams are known to be very difficult to keep. i don't think this is true .however you must keep their water pristine. that means your water parameters need to be on the money. 0 ammonia, 0 nitrite, stable ph and nitrates less than 40. also water changes are very important. i have a 45 gal
. i change out 6-7 gallons every 3rd day. frequent, small water changes are easier on your fish than large water changes unless you have an emergency. make sure to match the temperature of the tank water when you add new water. i also do gravel cleaning every week and do a 20% water change during that cleaning. if you keep the water fresh you will help keep your fish healthy and happy.
