    Okay. I think what I'll do is give them plenty of calcium rich foods in their diet, such as spinach and kale. I prefer to give my snail vegetables instead algae wafers anyway. As of the rams, I am getting them from a local breeder in southern california. I did a little research and found on the breeder's website that he breeds and raises his rams in a pH of 7.3-7.8 so I think they should do well in my tank. But I will be acclimating them extremely slowly just in case slowly.
    Just because it burns doesn't mean you're gonna die; just because you die doesn't mean you're gonna burn.

    PH is not the only parameter you need to find out from the breeder. You need to find out what the GH (general hardness) and TDS (total dissolved solid) level of the water used for the rams. He could have low TDS water and low GH, whereas you may have it much higher, even with the PH being close.

    Thankfully he's very quick with responding to emails. I'll contact him about that as well. Thanks Rocksor
