We have had both australian rainbows and dwarf neon rainbows and the dwarf neons would probably be fine in a 40B. They are still very active but not like the sprinting australians :)

It looks like a "gibby" to me, L83. The L114 could be a possibility too, but it's hard to say without seeing more of the tail/dorsal from the side. Gibbys are very common (and commonly incorrectly...

Parrot fish are hybrid cichlids so you would really be limited to a medium to large cichlid tank (central and south americans would probably be good choices). You could check into some of the acaras...

Harlequin rasboras have a pink/purple overtone. They are small and should be good dither fish for your kienkes. Some people say they are fragile but we've found them to be some of our most hardy fish.
