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

We have a 3gallon pico reef, want a pico fresh/brackish as well..?

Question by Bluebear: We have a 3gallon pico reef, want a pico fresh/brackish as well..?
We want to feature a uncommon fish in a planted environment and are open to ideas. We’ve considered butterflyfish, leaf-fish, a puffer, anableps (get too big!) and killies. Keep in mind this is a 3gallon tank.

all of those are too large for a 3 gallon…

if you like uncommon fish, try looking into a sparkling gourami for a 3 gallon, they are alittle rarer, and only grow about 1 inch.

i personally have had a male croaking gourami which is considered rare in the fish trade, in a 3 gallon with tons of live plants.

Again what you listed arent suitable for 3 gallons.

Edit: for brackish set-ups, bumblee bee gobys are suit able for a 3 gallon.

Q&A: Do Killifish and Rainbow Fish do well together?

Question by Kelsey: Do Killifish and Rainbow Fish do well together?
I have a Spare 10 gal. or 20 gal. tank and I want to know weather Killifish and Rainbow Fish do well together. They are both beautiful fish and I think that they would to very well together color-wise.

Answer by Gary C
The problem with your question is that both killifish and rainbow fish are very broad categories, with hundreds of species in each group.
But these fishes actually have many similarities (although they are not closely related), and if you pick the more peaceful species of each, and smaller species (since your tank is not large), they should do all right together.
