Suitable tank mates would be Discus, Rummynose Tetra, Cardinal Tetra, KuhlI Loaches and Clown Loaches.

I have my water temp around 81-82 degrees for my German blue, Bolivian, Gold rams. Also, I have zebra danios, neons, bumblebee catfish, ammano shrimps, and nerite snails. So far, so good.
I use to have a bumble bee catfish. One of my all
Time favorites. He would obliterate my couple cherry shrimp :) lol I love them though. I might move my cherries over into an 8 gallon I have and let them do their own thing soon though. I have 2 amanos.

I was debating on increasing my water temp but that would limit (more so) other fish to add with the rams. I will be adding another German Blue Ram (male) to my 4 (not sure if one of them is a male) female rams.

I raised it to increase they’re immune system and it’s suppose to color them up more. Do you need help sexing them?

That is too high for neons.

I've read that neons (naturally) can live in water temps 68-82 degrees. Also, my zebra danios, bumblebee catfish, ammano shrimps, and nerite snails should also be at lower temps below 81-82 degrees. I do weekly water changes and looks like they are all happy.
