You mean between 3 and 7dGH? There are a lot of rasbora that can work in that range. But you'll still want to figure out the exact number because that's still a large range and will be too hard for some rasbora. What specific species do you have in mind?

Yes. Harlequin rasbora are rather hardy. And they will work in your water. What are the dimensions of your tank?

Perfect! A school of 7-8 harlequins will fit in your tank wonderfully! I'm glad we could find something you like and that will work in your tank.
