Hello, I am thinking of adding a couple of Rams ro my community tank. Temp 82 and relatively brackish water.  I love the look of both GBR's & Bolivian. I want something peaceful and hardy. Not looking into breeding them. And are they fin nippers? Which do you prefer and why? Thank you.

Neither species is meant to live in brackish conditions long term, though I quarantined my Bolivians at 1TBS/3gallons for 6 weeks with zero adverse effects.

If you're picking a ram no matter what the brackishness is, I would do Bolivian rams. GBR are more prone to disease in tanks under 84F and fail to really thrive. Both species are peaceful unless they're trying to breed or you're unlucky and have a same sex pair that don't get along.
