Rams can be sensitive to nitrates. This can also cause stress (chasing)and in the long term death. Rams can try to mate often, mine try every couple of weeks. Are you keeping up on your water changes and checking your water (Ammonia, nitrates, nitrites)? May need more frequent water changes in the levels are high. Some Rams can breed and produce fry in hard water by adapting to your ph. If you don't produce fry. You can try reducing the ph they like it soft.
Is this a new tank with plants? Do you have other cycled tanks? If you do put some of the cycled tanks filter material in this tank and you will have just about instant cycle.
