Turquoise Rainbow would this work...

I would like to add a group of these to my 55 gallon if you guys think it would work how many should I add? It is heavily planted and the current stock are as follows:
2 Honey Sunset Gourami
2 Peacock Gudgeon
3 Corydorus Duplicaerus
4 Albino Corydorus
6 Golden Barb
10 Neon Tetras
10 Harleguin Rasbora
3 Flame Tetra

Kindest Regards,

Keeping fish its not a hobby it is a passion!

I have a 55 gallon, 40 gallon, 29 gallon, 20 gallon tank, 5 gallon , and a 2.5 gallon all with real plants.

I think you could do it, but it would a heavily stocked tank (especially if you fill out the flame tetra school). The rainbows have a fairly large bioload, but the rest of the fish have a smaller bioload.

What do you have for filtration?

125 - BGK, chanchito cichlid, pictus cats, silver dollars, palmas bichir
125 - cichlids (severums, bolivian rams, chocolate), rainbows ( turquoise, red), loaches (angelicus, zebra, kuhli and horseface), plecos (BN, RL and clown), denison barbs, tiretrack eel, pearl gouramis, betta
90 - Congo tetras, african knife, upside down cats, spotted ctenopoma, kribensis, delhezzi bichir
2.5 - betta
