thanks in advance
My tank is 10 feet by 2 feet by 1 1/2 feet. It's big. I had some red line barbs for a while, but I had a batch of bad water during a water change and most of the died. I also have plenty of cory catfish.

The Ram is a particularly colourful fish, but I have not attempted to keep them as my water is unsuitable for this more fussy species. As cichlids they are likely to be entertaining not to mention likely to reproduce. However, as Clown Loaches are such entertaining as well as magnificent fish I set up my aquarium solely for their benefit so their companions are there to assist their comfort as dither fish or to consume algae.
On the plus side Rams are at least compatible temperature wise, which many barbs are not. Many barbs only encounter Clown Loach temperatures briefly in the breeding season and are often described as subtropical rather than tropical. To keep them constantly at elevated temperatures is thought by many to greatly shorten their life span.
Rainbows and Congo Tetras as well as some other large african tetras may be more suitable temperature-wise and occupy the mid and upper reaches of the aquarium.
