I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

African. They are indestructible to planted tanks. The biotope is Columbian and that is based in Africa.:)

Both are South Americans.
There are 2 types of rams which should not be confused.
Blue Ram(Microgeophagus ramirezi)
This one is more sensitive to water quality therefore you must make sure your water conditions are stable. Extreme changes can be harmful.
Their coloration varies and apparently, rams these days are no longer as colorful as their wild generations. I recommend you get them from the breeder. Lfs will often stocked them in poor quality. Maximum size is 6 cm. Females have pink belly whereas males don't.
Take note that about 4 strains are available: blue(original), veiltail, balloon and gold. I would avoid the balloon. They are just deformed rams and are quite unnatural.
Male

Female

Take note the pink belly.
Bolivian Ram(Microgeophagus altispinosa)
Bolivians are larger compared to blue rams but they are hardier and will tolerate wide range of water conditions.

Sorry, Blue. Colombia is South American. Colombia from Colombus, first stop south of Panama.

I'm surprised you haven't recommended Diamond Tetras. :)

Burn - Neons an Rams would work fine - get yourself some Cories and a Bristlenose and you're in business. Blue & GoG are spot on about the problems vis Angelfish - needs better vertical lines and heavier planting. Maybe Festivums would work for you?

Logic is only the beginning of wisdom

Yes, they do.What was lacking are Eleocharis which look like grass. Angels love to hide among tall plants. Vallisneria is a good alternative in case Eleocharis are not unavailable. If not, try sagittarias.
