    I think they can. They are all peaceful fish. And as long as you keep the gourami as a single there should be no agression because the minnow and threadfin rainbows are all around the same size.
    Do you have a quarantine tank in case ich happens again? And also to make sure you don't spread anymore diseases, isolate the threadfins in the QT before adding them in with the gourami and minnows. This will help you make sure the threadfins are disease free before you add them to the main tank. There are several threads around the forum to help you set up one just in case.

    Here is a link about threadfin rainbows:

    My concern is that rainbows need warmer water than minnows which I believe are cooler water fish. But +1 on the quarantine suggestion.
