Can I get away with 8 Australian Rainbows in a 29 gallon?

I must make room in my 75 gallon for some more Angels that I am getting. Would I be able to get away with 8 Australian Rainbows in a 29 Gallon tank? If they were the only inhabitants?

I really wouldn't. They get 6 inches and are big, strong fish that really do need a large space to swim in.

Thank you for the real reply. I have been trying to research how big they get, and it is good to know they could get 6". A site I found said 4" (http://animal-world.com/encyclo/fres...ainbowfish.php).

And I wasn't sure how much horizontal space they needed to swim. I have found alot about Bosemani and Turquoise but not alot on Australian.
