30 Gallon Tank Thoughts on Keeping These Microfish With Rainbowfish?

Megaanemp

Hello all,

I am stocking a 30 gallon tank and am hoping for a bit of a mishmash community.
I have 6 dwarf neon Rainbowfish already that are in qt before being added.
For now I will also be adding some runts from my Batch of Juvenile Bolivian Rams to grow out.
I may eventually keep 1-2 adult Bolivian Rams in here as well.
I am also considering adding a school of chili rasboras and/or Pygmy Corys (pygmaeus).
How do you think these small fish would do with the rainbows?
I’m wondering if they’d feel overwhelmed by the busier fish.
The tank will be well planted and have lots of cover.

So here’s a possible stock list:

6x dwarf neon Rainbowfish
2x Bolivian Rams
13x Pygmy Corys
20x Chili rasboras
(May add some shrimp too)


What do you think?

Don't see issue with dwarf rainbows. The chili's will be super happy in group of 20. Sounds perfect to me!!!

Thanks for the reply! I think the large-ish groups for the little fish will help them be confident .
