My rams are doing well in hard water with a ph of 7.2....i had them with my redtail shark and they got along until the rams were about to lay eggs. i saw a ripped dorsal fin on the shark which is twice their size so i got the shark out since they chose to breed in one of his rocks. They would have most likely settled had i let them figure out their own territories and this was in a 33 gallon.

55 Gallon Fluval 48x12x20{3 Angelfish, 9 Harlequin Rasboras, 7 Gold Barbs, 6 Buenos Aires Tetras, 1 Red Tailed Black Shark, 1 Paradise Gourami }

33 Gallon Hagen 36x12x18 {1 male blue Ram, 1 female electric blue Ram, some Danios}

16 Gallon Aqueon Bow Front 20x13x18 {Pair of Breeding Angelfish }

Aqueon Evolve 4 {1 Male Red Betta}

I heard horse face loaches dig insanely. Never personally kept them though. Just a thought
