    My tank has soft water and a current pH of 7.6. Is this pH okay for the rams? And will the Nerite snails be okay if the water if fairly soft?

About Me:
Hello, call me Paradi! That's pronounced Pair-uh-die in case anyone was wondering lol. I've been keeping fish for years and have had my fair share of large and small aquariums.

Why do you like AC Tropical Fish:
I've used this site for years and found time and time again that it's my favorite because it always
San Jose, CA
Aquarium 1:
28 US gallon JBJ cube aquarium. It is cycled but currently fishless. I will be adding four peppered cories very soon. My plants include only Anubias, Java Fern, and a little Monte Carlo I am trying to eventually carpet. I plan on eventually adding Otos and German Blue Rams.
Aquarium 2:
I don't have a second aquarium.
Aquarium 3:
I don't have a third aquarium.
Rest of Your Aquariums:
I don't have more aquariums than that/those described above.
How I got started with aquariums.:
My aunt bought me a little 10 gallon aquarium for my 13th birthday and I have been obsessed ever since.
Favorite fish:
SO hard to choose! Cories, GBRs, Oscars, the list goes on!
Fish I have bred:
I have bred Mystery Snails, Platies, Trumpet Snails, Ramshorn Snails, Bronze Cories, Otos, Pearl Gouramis, Bristle-Nosed Plecos, Infusoria, Brine Shrimp, and Triops in my years of fish keeping. Hopefully one day German Blue Rams as well!
Why I like fish::
Fish are beautiful, fascinating, exotic, and full of personality.
Best advice:
DO YOUR RESEARCH, until your brain is sore and you literally cannot take any more information in. Do this BEFORE purchasing any fish and equipment.
Other pets:
Currently, I also have two parrots and a dog, but I have had all sorts of critters in my lifetime.
