I was at my lfs and there was a blue ram for sale for 7 dollars? Is this a good price? And if you have any experiences with them...what is the best way to take care of them in a community tank, if they can be in a community tank btw it's 55 gallons and a well cycled tank

That is a pretty good deal, they can be very expensive. I don't have any personal experience with them yet but I'll be getting some in the near future. I've heard that they are peaceful but very fragile so you'd need to stay on top of your parameters.

What's your other stocking in the 55 gal? Blue rams need higher temps than most other fish.

What kind of gouramis? You have some stocking issues if you'd like to discuss them.

They're not temp compatible with the platies, so I would not get them.

80 F is too high for the platies. The platies really don't have much temp overlap with your angels.

They may look fine, but staying permanently at a higher temp will shorten their lifespan and make them more susceptible to diseases. Not very fair to them, is it?
