I'm thinkin of picking up a couple bosemi rainbow tonight for my 55 gal I already have a two regular rainbows that stay together and I was wondering if they would all school together or would they be confrontational, anybody had any experience with this at all?

My boesemani stick together pretty well other than mornings when they spawn and then they go nuts after the females. Unfortunately, my females are out numbered by males but spawning is over in a couple hours and all is happy again.

I have 3 different types of Rainbows and they have all been togeather in one tank at one time or another and mine do not school togeather.The Reds stay in their group as do the Boesemani and the Parkinsoni's.

I have found that my Thread Fin Rainbows and my Dwarf neon blue rainbows and my Kutubu Rainbows school with each-other from time to time. But not the same as each species will school with their own species.
