Do these sea creatures go well together? or will they get smoked?

Question by Gabrielle: Do these sea creatures go well together? or will they get smoked?
I’m thinking of getting a fish tank, therefore, I am scouting my options, finding which sorts of fish appeal to me. I have chosen several types and because of my inherent lack of experience, I was wondering if someone with considerable knowledge on the subject could help me out.
The breeds I chose are the following:
~ crabs
~ corydoras catfish
~kribensis cichlid
~ jack dempsey cichlid
~livebearer
~guppies
~white cloud mountain minnows
~killies
~three stripe cory

Would these choices work in an eight gallon tank?

NOOOOO lol. wayyy to many fish for an 8 gallon you would need at least a 50 gallon and then you still may have problems with agression. Also because that would stunt the fishes growth and slowly kill them

Poop eating fish… Do they even exist?

Question by psychoninja911: Poop eating fish… Do they even exist?
I currently don’t have a gravel vacuum/siphon. Was wondering if there’s a type of fish that will vacuum up poop/waste/extra food?

I have 2 plecos (not poop eaters), 2 koi gold fish, 6 platy, and… Something like 6 or 7 random species of killifish… Some of these fish will pick at the bottom, but I don’t think they’re actually sucking poop up.

Water quality is good and it’s not cloudy… Just lookin’ for a poop eater.

Any ideas?

i recommend you get gravel its somehow important for your fish health. a snail could do the job to clean the tank but u do need gravel if u have a snail

What is the tank size, food, and temperature for japanese killifish (medaka)? Are they compatible with ADFs?

Question by Todd H: What is the tank size, food, and temperature for japanese killifish (medaka)? Are they compatible with ADFs?
I am considering a five gallon tank for two african dwarf frogs, two medakas, an olive snail, and a dwarf anubias plant. Is this overstocking? If the medakas can’t coexist with the frogs, what are good tankmates that would be suitable for 5 gallons, which I know is small? I haven’t bought any fish yet and I know about cycling.

Answer by Black Kat
If you would want to keep both the medaka and the ADFs, I would suggest using a 10 gallon tank. That wouldn’t be a bad idea for just the medaka alone, either. I’ve even seen 15 gallons as the minimum size tank they should be in. The larger you have, the more diluted the wastes from the frogs will be, plus you can use some of the extra room to keep live foods that the killis can eat [daphnia, mosquito larvae, etc.]. And I’ll bet the frogs will help eat them too. But if you keep them together, there’s a good chance the frogs will also eat any fry you might get. But other than that, there shouldn’t be a problem keeping them together. The medakas should be big enough [if you’re getting them as near adults] that the frogs don’t mistake them for food.
