What kind of rainbow fish?
My, guess, although I have never kept a rainbow shark, is that it will work. I would avoid any very small rainbows or ones with longer flowing fins.

Don't see why it wouldn't work.

I have 4 green tiger barbs and two bosemani rainbow fish. the rainbow fish will chase the barbs at feeding time but the barbs can fend for themselves and aren't intimidated. other than feeding time they all get along fine.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.
