    Welcome to Fishlore!

    They will work fine together. What tank size are they going in? Remember that raphael catfish need a minimum of a 55g tank.

    I disagree. The Raphael could eat the Rams. They get large and will eat anything that fits in their mouth.

    Welcome to Fishlore

    I also do not believe the catfish belongs in a tank with rams or discus. He will eat the smaller rams and I do not believe will be able to tolerate the high temps a discus requires.
