Rams do appreciate softer water and the success of raising fry may depend upon water conditions to be set in certain water parameters. They do appreciate soft water for breeding. If you are planning on breeding them I would suggest another tank to breed them in and slowly adjust their water using either distilled or reverse osmosis water.

Here is a link with some good information on Ram Cichlid (Mikrogeophagus ramirezi)

Ram Cichlid, Mikrogeophagus ramirezi, also called Blue Ram, German Ram, Butterfly Ram, or Golden Ram

Keep the other tank the way that it is set up as the fish have adapted to that environment.
