Thanks a lot guys, I really appreciate all the feedback.
I agree with other's on the Ehiem classic filter's.
On a side note,, if your water suited the African cichlid's who enjoy hard ,alkaline water,then it is doubtful the blue ram's will do well for very long for they very much prefer soft,acidic water.
You may be able to mix 50/50 tapwater, R/O water,and keep them thriving but may require some expierimenting to get mixture right for these soft water species.

As for this,I have always had to use seachems malawi buffer on my water. However, I will also be using ADA Aquasoil and if I am not mistaken, that will lower the softness and acidity of the water? Am I wrong in thinking this?
