Do you know about our fish and plant profiles? You can find some good info on the ram there, click the shaded name Blue Ram.
Temperature is important, this fish likes warmth, 82F is usual. But this is going to burn out the danio, whatever species they are, as they are more active fish and the warmer the water the less oxygen it holds and the faster the fish's metabolism has to work.
The GH (hardness) and pH are important, but this somewhat depends upon where the fish was raised. Blue rams are mostly commercially-raised now, unless you buy wild caught fish from an importer, so the water parameters at the breeder's is important. Wild caught fish must have soft, acidic water; but commercially-raised fish should stay in water with parameters close to that of the breeder's.
Why is your temp such a range, 75-80F?
