    Hi, all!
    I've read in many articles that Blue Rams prefer higher water temperatures of low to mid eighties. Here is just one of them:

    I keep my tank with a pair of Germans at about 80F-81F, but I'm not sure if that is warm enough for them.
    So, what temperature do you guys keep your Blue Rams in?
    Thank you,
    F.

    When i had them my temp was right between 80-82. I think your temp is good, but I'm not a true expert with Rams.

    I've kept mine at 78 with no problems but I don't think I would go any lower than that. Tank raised fish are a little more forgiving than wild caught.
