    Hi everyone,

    Would Dwarf Neon Rainbowfish (let's say 8) be okay with a school of Boesemani Rainbowfish?

    Tank is 80 gallons.

    Many thanks.

    Yes. Just make sure you have decent-sized groups of each species. Eight of the Dwarf is fine, try to get a ratio of more males to females, roughly two females per male. Males can be quite demanding on the females in this species.

    The Boesemani should be in a group of 8 or more, as males will be more colourful the more of the species there are.
