No, not really..not like many people tend to think.

Blue rams are much heartier than people give them credit for.

Defiantly if you do your weekly water change you should be fine. Look for one showing good colors as these usually are tougher

Well, I currently have 4 blak kuhlis, I think I'm adding a Raphael catfish and the GBR as the bottom feeders, and I'm adding 5 ghost cats, 3 silver hatchets, 1 dwarf gourami, 1 bn pleco, and one clown pleco

I'd skip the Raphael they get big about 6-7" and I'd skip the gourami and one of the plecos. Plecos bioload is to high and they gourami and mikrogeophagus ramirezi may have trouble

How big do Rapheal cats get? With this only being a 29, I'd only choose 1 pleco. Ive had both at different times. The bnp is way more active during the day and was an algae eating monster. Clown pleco,the one I had, liked to hide and was real lazy. But it was very pretty. Both seemed to have a pretty high tolerance level towards the other tank mates. But when the line was crossed, they'd quickly give a short chase and that was the end of that.

Ok, I guess I'm going with a bn then
Stripped Raphael's get to be 7.5 inches+, but spotted ones get to be 5.5 inches

Word of warning the Raphaels are little bulldozers and can get themselves stuck in decor

Watch rams and other bottom feeders. They tend to be very aggressive and will usually attack other fish swimming low.
