Question Diamond Rainbowfish with swordtails?

Is it possible to safely keep a Diamond Rainbowfish with swordtails and guppies? I am setting up my first freshwater aquarium and I'm not sure if I can keep this kind of fish. I am planning to have the temp. at 75 deegrees (f) and the PH at 7.0.

Assuming by "Diamond Rainbow" you mean the Dwarf Neon Rainbowfish, here is a link to our profile of the species.

It needs a group, 6 or more, as it is a shoaling fish, so keep this in mind. In another thread you mention a 30g tank, and I don't know if that is the same tank or not, but if it is, you won't have room for much else, upper fish anyway. Some substrate fish will be OK.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
