    Would German rams (gold and electric blue) and bosemani rainbow fish be compatible? There is a lot of cover in the bottom and mid level of my tank and lots of swimming room up top.

    Yes, what size tank do you have?

    I've never encountered an issue mixing rams and rainbows together. In a smaller tank, be mindful of the rams spawning.

    55 gallon. I know the rainbows need to be in groups of 5 so the only other things in the tank would be some amano shrimp and maybe a small school of tetras.

    Sounds good - both like similar temps, and the fact that the rainbows require a 4 ft tank (like your 55) should allow plenty of room for everyone should the rams spawn.

    Thanks for the advice everyone! I'm hoping the rams don't spawn as I don't want to deal with fry. But if any actually do hatch I'll see if my lfs will take them. Thanks again!

    Yes, they're compatible.
