Hi all, A week or two ago I posted my stocking plans for my 55gal community tank. Everyone seemed to think the stocking plan was good, however, after doing some more research I am not sure. My original plan was: - 8 corydoras (haven't decided for sure on what type, probably trilineatus) - 5 platy - 15 Rummynose Tetra - 1 Mystery snails - 3 mollies - 2 Gardneri killifish (may be switched with something else) After getting some responses, I was convinced that I should replace the killifish with a pair of rams. Originally this was going to be GBR but after doing some more research I was going to go with Bolivian rams. So I did some more research and I am not sure if they will be okay with my water hardness as my water is slightly (moderately?) hard. My tap water readings (based on the API liquid kit) are: kH 125.3ppm / dKH 7 gH 161.1 ppm / dKH 9 dH range - 6-11 I have heard that some fish can and do typically adapt and thrive in home water conditions that are different then their natural habit, but I have also heard that Rams tend to be delicate when it comes to water parameters. So I guess my question is am I correct in thinking the Rams will not work? And if not do you have any other ideas for a cool, colorful pair of fish to showcase in my peaceful tank? Thanks! ETA - I just read on another site that Bolivian rams will thrive with a water hardness of up to 12. And that stability is more important than the actual readings, is this true?
