Greggz hasnt said it yet, but if possible get your Rainbows from a quality source. The difference between a quality rainbow and some of say Petsmart stock is night and day. Since you are in Mn you could consider Wetspot. Or there are breeders on Aquabid with amazing Rainbows. They are not all the same (depending on source). Get with Greggz on his sources and order them. You will be happy you did. I got lucky with my Bosemani, but they aren't fantastic... my Goyder Reds are a flop. My other Rainbows however are pretty amazing. In a 240 you can create an incredible community.
Also... in case you were considering it... C02 is worth it's weight in gold. Without it, your plant choices will be reduced drastically and growth will be slow... not good slow... bad slow where algae is always an issue.
Take your time looking at rainbows and choose what you like. My 75 gallon has rainbows.

2 Goyder River (poor breeding)
2 Dorityi (awesome!)
