various rainbowfish school together?

I was given 1 adult turquoise rainbow yesterday, will he school with my (also adult) red irians, or should I think about rehoming the turquoise? I know they prefer larger schools, and I don't have room in my 55 gal for 2 schools of rainbows.
Thanks!

I have bosemanis and Australians, rainbows can actually cross breed and have hybrid fry

Thanks for the reply, I've been looking all over, and I have seen a lot of mixed reviews on this. I'll just try and see when he gets out of quarantine.

I know Dustin's Fishtanks keeps a mixed school of rainbows in one of his displays, and he said it works great.
