Hello to All!

Hi, I am new to forums, the interweb(!), computers and new fangled things! but I've kept tropical fish on and off for 25 years. At present I have a 36"x15"x12" community tank stocked with guppies, platys, sailfin mollies, lyre swordtails, dwarf orange gouramis, glass catfish, an unknown (by me, anyway!) type of 'snail~eating' loach and an albino African dwarf frog. I've had this aquarium set-up for two years now, and apart from the dwarf gouramis not getting on together (I think they're both males) everythings going fine.
I've recently acquired a 30 gallon tank complete with tenant 9" pleco. I am in the process of trying to find a new home for it asap, as it is obviously too big for this size tank and still has a lot more growing to do! When it has gone I would like to stock with Rainbowfish.
Types I am interested in keeping are; Boesmans, Red, Parkinsons (sometimes called Orange) and Spotted. What I need help with is, are these types compatable and how many can I comfortably have without harming or stressing them? I would really appreciate any help and or advice as I am keen to get started!!!

Hi,I have keep australian rainbows before,from what I have heard you can keep multiple species of rainbows but I think it would look better with 1 species.is the tank 36 inches long? They do better in numbers.here is an idea,get the dwarf rainbows.maybe 12 or more and they stay small
