I am thinking about getting a pair of Bolivian rams. Will they do well in a tank with a neutral PH and hard water (10 dKH and 6.7dGH???) If anyone is keeping rams in similar water please let me know. I dont want to buy them only to have them die.
As long as you acclimate them properly they should be okay. They are south american fish so the water they are naturally from is softer but if you acclimate you should be good. Having stability of water conditions is really important.
Thank you for your replys. I will ask at my LFS where the rams came from but im thinking the LFS would have similar water to me.
It's not so much the LFS's water, but the source they were originally born and raised in. They are only in the store for a short amount of time so that is not a very good indicator of how well they will do in your water long term
