New to Rams

Ive done alot of research on Rams but I have no experience with them. now, I ask you all, should I get a Ram? My tank is a 10 gallon, about 8+ months old. it contains dwarf platys, 5 ghost shrimp, 1 amazon sword and multiple moneyworts. What do you think? I know im pushing it but i really want one :D

How many dwarf platies? The ram might also kill your shrimp, but as long as the tank isn't heavily stocked with the platies I think it's do-able.

They probably can't eat a fully grown ghost shrimp- plus, ghost shrimp are hard to see, and therefore hard to chase. They will certainly eat young cherry shrimp and such, but you should be just fine with the ghost shrimp.
