Hey, I have a 29 Gallon. Would I be able to keep Boesemani Rainbows with my Habrosus Corys? Ive read that the rainbows get to be 4.5 inches, at that size I would think that they would definitely eat my poor little corys.

Also, I have very limited knowledge about these rainbows. Are they easy to keep? What ratio should i have?

No. You need at least a 40Long or a 55gal tank. IMO A neon rainbow would be a better choice.

yea I was thinking thed be a bit too big.

I was really looking for a fish that would bring alot of color to my tank, and neon rainbows arent colorful enough.

I am a little bored of tetras, I really cant think of anything that will add nice color,

I am thinking for my 29 gallon:

7 Furcatas
5 ish guppies
5 ish Glass Catfish
(And am in need of one other kind of colorful fish)

any ideas?

Peacock Gudgeon (goby) can be quite colorful but they can be quite picky eaters. they do best in pairs also
