    Also could I add a Bolivian ram or 2 with them.

    Nothing I plan on getting a new tank and once it's cycled I wanted to add the rainbows

    I would feel comfortable with 10 in there with a pair of Bolivian rams.

    You would also be able to do a dwarf or honey gourami if you did what TD suggested, imo.

    Is there any way I could add rummy nose tetras or scissor tail rasboras

    Not scissortail rasbora, they get around 6" long. You could do rummynose tetra in a tank this size, but I wouldn't keep them with Bolivian rams - there's not a lot of temp overlap there. I'd keep rummynose with blue rams instead.

    Would Neons work with Bolivians?

    Would Zebra Danios work in this tank if I keep it at 75°F
     
  15. TexasDomer

    TexasDomer Fishlore Legend Member

    Yep!

    You could do something like this:
    8-10x Zebra danios
    10-12x Neons
    2x Bolivian rams

    Yes, I'll maybe reduce it to 74 degrees or below. 75 sounds too high to me for neons
