One of the big things is if you do the blue rams you need to make sure that the other fish with them are able to tolerate the higher temps that the blue ram requires.

Yeah I knew they needed higher temps. Again is this something I should stick to what they were raised in? Or always keep them in the 80 degree temp range?

The common or blue ram needs warmth, 82F is fine. Many other "tropical" fish will burn out at this high a continuous temperature, such as corys except for Corydoras sterbai and a couple others, some characins won't last (neon tetra, etc), many catfish. Need to carefully plan tankmates.

Argh, maybe I'll just go with my original idea of getting kribs. It'd be easier and I'd be able to have more options for fish. I have no idea what fish I could keep at 82F. :( I had my heart set on those rams!
