I keep Blue Rams in 7.4 ph moderately hard without any problem. It really matters what they were bred in. I know my fish were bred locally in local water, and mine look great and have spawned in these conditions. If I were you I would ask where the fish come from. If they are sourced from a wholesaler they are probably Asian pond bred Rams which are bred in low ph and need low ph

I have had my rams for almost a year with no signs of ill health or deterioration.

My LFS gets the ones I have from a place in Oregon, called "Chichlid Exchange". Ever heard of them? I would imagine most are coming from the USA, but maybe I'm wrong. Why would fish be getting shipped from Asia, if there are lots of places breeding them nationally?

I honestly don't know why people still get them from asia, but I know they are still imported. They breed them by the thousands in outdoor ponds. I have talked to my LFS store owner and he told me it really depends on the wholesaler. Some really good wholesalers know each source and stick with reliable sources, others just go for the cheapest fish. Same with LFS owners.
