I agree with Izzy, hah.
I've seen this combo tons of times over, but it's a ticking time bomb. Cichlids and anabantids simply should never be mixed, no angel fish and betta, no rams and betta. These are two fish that both want to dominate the tank.
Rams really do seem one of the sweethearts of the cichlid world, but even a lone ram can become aggressive if it decides it's ready to mate (doesn't need a partner in the tank to think this).
Blue rams are also quite a sensitive fish, so if you're still interested in them, research well. They need warm waters (over 80F) with some dither fish that can handle those temperatures. The similar Bolivian ram is a much hardier fish.
