I just got my female today, the last one came from a bad breed of some sort. My buddy lost two males from the same store and neither of us are inept fish keepers. Anyway I got one from a different store today so I'm hoping as your post says that "love is the air... or water" lol

My ph is @ 7.6 but I'm wondering if lowering it with indian almond leaves is a good idea? I have Ramirez Dwarf Cichlids they're still babies and are just getting their colors.

cole I think lowering it is fine with whatever you can use to do so slowly and in a stable way

So a alkaline ph won't affect spawning because i read when breeding rams they need specific water conditions.
