I could not agree more. These fish absolutely do not belong together. The ram will end up dead eventually.
As an aside, there are a lot of great pet store employees out there. There are a lot of NOT so great pet store employees out there. When you're new to the hobby, you probably won't know which is which, so a good rule of thumb is to not depend on them for advice.
