So after doing some research and watching 10000 Youtube videos I've decided to go with a pair of German Blue Rams or Electric Blue Rams instead of getting a Betta. So the stocking plan for my 29 gallon is now 10 Harlequin Rasboras, 10 Neon Tetras, 5 Nerite snails, 20 Red Cherry Shrimp (understanding we may have some casualties), and then the two rams. Does this sound pretty doable? My LFS has the Electric Blue Rams but I kind of like the coloration on the GBRs more so I may have to get those online. Can anyone recommend a good fish buying site? Also I know my tap water is pretty hard from past PPM tests I've done which I believe came out as 250ppm and the PH has been right around 8. Is this level of hardness completely out of the question for these fish? I've read that I could use peat moss if I don't mind yellowing water or chemicals but other than that would I just need to add distilled water to even it out to the right level?

Thank you

Thanks for the advice. I will definitely try and keep conditions as close to ideal as possible for them. These guys will be the last addition to my tank so I'll have time to get everything right. Would you recommend just going with a pair with a 29 gallon or get a third?
