Hey guys I inherited 6 Rainbows from a friend moving away. They are currently in my 20G long with my 4 german blue rams. They will all be going in my new 50G tank which is 36Lx18Wx15T (perfect footprint IMO) the Rams and the Rainbows seem to get along fine, what else do you think I could keep in here with them. I was thinking like 30 Neon tetras and a few corys. Tell me what you think.

Looks like you have a New Guinea Red and some Goyder Rivers. They grow to about 5" and are peaceful with anything that doesn't fit in their mouths.

BTW, Rainbows are prolific breeders, but the fry are very small and slow growing. I have some Dwarf Neon Rainbows in one of my tanks which has an overabundance of plants. I put some of of the plants in a dish wash basin of water on my fire escape, and I noticed about 10 tiny fry swimming in there the next day. I wish that I had room for a small backyard pond.
