It can be done. Honestly stability of water parameters seems more important than specific numbers. However if you want a natural way to make your water more suitable for the rams just throw some peat into a fine mesh bag and put it in your filter. It traps GH
increasing elements like calcium and magnesium thus lowering GH
. The best thing you can do when buying rams is to get them from a local breeder. They are more accustomed to your water supply and they tend to do significantly better than their farmed cousins.
