Hi guys I'm wondering if I could put a rainbow cichlid in a 26 gallon tank with a few peacock gudgeons, 3synodontis lucipinnis, dwarf gourami,6 pseudomogil gertrudae and maybe even a golden wonder killifish?

Yes.

But, your 26 gallon aquarium is getting pretty full with fish. Maxing out the filtration system like that with the limits in bio-load the tank can hold, may end very badly for you if the electric power shuts off for more than a half day or so...
Could it be time for a larger aquarium?
Or, time for another aquarium?

Yes I agree a larger tank would definitely be ideal but my parents will not allow me to get a larger one so I think I will trim the stock down I have decided to rehome the dwarf gourami because I heard they can get territorial especially if with something like a cichlid, as well as the golden wonder killi and the rainbow fish.

So I'd be left with 3 lucipinnis, 5 peacock gudgeons (I might consider selling a pair off if that would be best for the tank) a rainbow cichlid, and a few guppys that I am going to move into the tank so the rest can try and control the fry population, do you think this set up is more manageable?

No, reducing the stocking numbers in your tank like that, would work out great.
Sounds really good to me. :)
