Schooling Fish with Angelfish

Hello again!

I'm here today because I need some help finding a compatible schooling fish to live with my Blood Parrot, Angelfish, Gold Gourami, Rainbowfish, and Juli Corys in my 75g tank. I know I'm near fully stocked, and I would like to find another school that can put up with these fish.

My #1 choices were Black Ruby Barbs or Odessa Barbs, both available at my LFS, but I don't know if they will nip my Angelfish. I had Serpae Tetras in my tank originally, but they ended up nipping my Gourami and leaving my 4-5 inch Angel alone. Regardless, I had to net them all up. I am also thinking about Black Phantom Tetras. I was also going to consider New Guinea Rainbows but I would only have room for 3-4.

Would any of these schools work? Would the two species of Rainbows stick together or do they need more of their own kind? Do you have any other suggestions that I didnt mention? Thanks.

I had a school of 6 serpae tetras with 4 angels and 4 pearl gouramis. Never had an issue with one another. I guess it depends on the individual fish. I don't know about rainbows but I think tetras should work. As long as they are fast enough and don't easily fit into the mouth of other fish, I think they should be ok.

You can keep those small Harlequins with big cichlids?

With the cichlids you have I'd give it a shot. Harlequins are not much smaller than the barbs you are interested in. That said, I don't see a problem with those barbs.
