So I just got a pair of Rainbow Cichlids not gonna lie it was a little bit impulsive. But I am happy with what I got. I just had a question about Tank mates for a 40g breeder with a lot of structure would it be ok to add a pair of firemouths to the tank?

Congrats. Recently picked up a dozen fry.

I'm planning on stocking them in a 75. I certainly considered another species like Thorichthys or some Sajica. But I'm sticking with some swordtails for tankmates, like James recommended. Due to their timid rep, your fish would benefit as the lone cichlids in a 3' tank.

Ok they just bred yesterday. They are really stunning and turn and bright almost golden color with grayish blue along the side of the male. What about gouramis will they work?
