Also rainbow Sharks while only getting 6" long actually do get quite big. They also are territorial and will eat what can fit in their mouth. So once the shark gets big I'd worry about those danios.

Also I have done research (hours of it) I am pretty much a walking fish dictionary. And it makes sense because I really want to be an Ichthyologist. So I asumed that the rainbow shark would be fine unlike its cousin the restful shark.

This is why I was concerned. This is from www.AqAdvisor.com it's a popular stocking generator for fish tanks.

That's your 40g (I used a 40 breeder)
I don't think I've ever seen so much red text there.

Don't pay attention to filtration capacity in worried about your crush comparability.

Whoops. I will watch for issues. I think they are fine the giant Danio were schooling with the rainbows and I am planning to get some more rainbows for the 40 gallon. As for the smaller schooling fish they typically all school together. And the Betta and the rams stay in separate parts of the tank. The Betta is always in the least populated part of the tank where he is visited and angered by the tetras.

I can redo the tank I've done it before I can do it again.

Hey noah, welcome. As stated there are a few problems here. The 40 was well pointed out by Caleb. A lot going on in that cichlid tank. The more qualified cichlid guys can tell you more than I but that mbuna/peacock stocking will likely be trouble.

In the cichlid tank i have chosen some cichlids that are more likely to get along and I have talked with a cichlid expert. Dave's Rare Aquarium Fish-Price List

If I were to redo the 40 gallon could I do some rainbows and other smaller fish?
