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.
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.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]
Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
