I have 1 iranian red rainbow and 2 dead assorted male guppies. Both tails ripped to shreds I also had 1 neon dwarf gouramI but I took him back. Would the iranian red rainbow eat tails?

Welcome to fish lore.

after a fish dies the tail can become a very quick snack for just about anything really.

Welcome to the forum

Yes, it is likely the rainbow. They grow to be large, active fish - the 20 is very small for them. Also, rainbows need a school or they can get aggressive with other fish.
