Default Paradise Fish Compatibility

I have a male and female Blue Paradise Gourami in a 20 gallon planted aquarium. I saw a Blue German Ram that I would like to have at the pet store. Does anyone know if these would be compatible? I'm getting mixed information from my google searches...

Paradise Fish are generally an aggressive fish and should not be kept with slow moving fish, fish with long fins, and anything smaller than themselves.

Rams would not do well if kept with aggressive fish and Rams require better water quality and care than the average fish.
I got off the porch and ran with the big dogs. Now I can't get back on the porch!
