    I have looked this up many times but have not found my answer. What rainbow fish are compatible with livebearers? The ph is 8.4-8.8

    What about a Boesemani Rainbow (aka Melanotaenia boesemani)?
    They are super pretty and like a high ph, too.
    Compatible with guppies and I assume other livebearers. And a centerpiece fish.

    I may have found the fish that has been missing out of your tank the whole time... it seems like a perfect fit for it. Plus the colors are amazinnggg.

    Yes boesmani are vibrant fish and suitable for a 100gal.

    Yay! I was looking at them earlier. How many should I do?


    I plan on having 13 guppies, pet store endlers lol, swordtails, platys, and five mollies. How many of the swordtails, platys, and endlers should I do?

    No more than ten, and with your livebearers be prepared for some possible hybridisation.
