I've got too many rainbows in my 75g: I've got 9 large rainbows (not as big
as your biggest ones, but all around 4 inches, and with fairly deep bodies.)
I've also got 3 smaller rainbows, about the size of the neons. This isn't
counting the new ones I just added. So, it's probably less load than your
rainbow tank, but it's in a smaller tank too.

I agree. It's definitely more than the flake food amounts to.
I use frozen food, cubes and slabs. But I always drop the cube or piece of
the slab into a brine-shrimp net, and rinse it until it's competely melted.
This gets rid of all the other junk, and just leaves the brine.
