UV sterilizer can help. Clean as usual, then run the uv for a couple of days to kill waterborne spores. Needs to be a powerful bulb though with good contact time. Spores are bigger than germs.

Boesemani Rainbows 75g

I had 13 that did just fine along with many other fish. They get big enough that 13 is the most I'd put in a 75g. Not because the load is too high, but because of appearance. It will look "full" of...
