Yes there is something in your tank that isn't letting you PH drop... I know limestone causes your PH to go up, but that isn't the only cause, and theres not much of a chance that theres limestone decor in your tank... I've heard that driftwood can lower your PH, but don't quote me on that...
Is there anything in the tank yet? If not, remove the gravel and any decor, try lowering the PH, then one by one, put the decorations in one by one, one a day, and test your ph every day... this will tell you whats causing it....
Can't think of anything else to help you out... This method is definitely not an easier one, but I havent kept fish for long enough to know any better remedies for high PH levels...
Cichlids cannot adapt to different PH levels, at least none that I know of, definitely not blue rams.
