Welcome Ganesh! I'm sure you'll find the site helpful. I hate to say this, and I think many here will agree, but a 30 gal is already to small for Rainbow fish. I believe a Blood parrot is a cichlid? They get very large, if I'm not wrong. Putting that type of cichlid with rainbow fish, seems like a poor match, IMO. See what others say here.

What type of Rainbows are they, and how many do you have? They are fish that need to be kept in a group of at least 5.

Just because animals can't talk, does not mean they should not be heard

At one point I considered getting a blood parrot but I was intending it to go in my 60 gallon tank and realized that the tank was too small for a blood parrot. Will you be getting a much larger tank to re-home them into? At this stage, I wouldn't add any more fish as you are already over capacity.
