In the long run 1 pair would be best and 2 pair is pushing it .
You are speaking of GBR not Bolivians correct ?

6 given they have places to hide. Live plants are great.
Not everyone can pull this off ..Sometimes you really can ,sometimes epic fail ..
Rams can be like bettas or any other fish and have a personality that literally does not fit ..

None, IMO, My opinion, kind of like how many lions can fit in a 10x10 dog run?

I had 4 at one point in a planted tank. One male killed the other. Now I have just a pair and all is good. They’re breeding too

20 high , forgot to add. And German blue rams

I have 6 in a 60 gallon tank and honestly it seems like that is pushing it sometimes, they( mine at least) are pretty territorial and will fight eachother for that territory. Luckily I have a good amount of plants and decor in my tank so they kinda paired off and each claI'm a certain piece of territory, but if one goes into another's they will chase it away or fight.

I should say I absolutely love them though, my post seemed kind of negative but they are beautiful and really fun to watch

Nice how they stay with their mate ! ;)
He is teasing you all !
They are in QT there until they get to go to the right tank ..
Not all rams get along so well ..
Yes those are Electric Blue , Long Fin Gold ,and a cross of the GBR /EBR that is the beginning of Red Rams ..
