It's not the size of the fish, it's the size of the territory they claim and how rough they are on other fish, particularly their own species. Leleupi are generally brutal on conspecifics.

At 1" they should be safe enough, but I have tossed smaller BN fry into cichlid tanks just to thin them out. When they're only a couple weeks old they don't have spines yet, and get eaten just like...

Blue acara are a relatively mellow mid-size cichlid, keyholes and festiviums also come to mind. Forget the guppies and hope the cichlid/s keep up with the molly fry or the tank will soon become...

The rosy red will be a catfish snack. Denison barbs really need a much larger tank than a 55, they're active open-water schooling fish. Rainbows would be a better option for the tank size. Tiger...

I found that Akysis catfish will eat endler's fry but nothing much larger. Likely would eat shrimp too, didn't have shrimp in the tank with them though.

Ya, L-204 ia a Panaque, ands they require wood in their diet. Personally I'm not a fan of wafers, Hikari or otherwise, NLS pellets are a better staple diet IME.

The only cichlids that would be suitable for that tank are Tanganykian multi's, the males max out around 1.5', females about 1". A trio of them and some escargot shells would be fine with the...

Ya, freshwater fairy shrimp, essentially the same as brine shrimp. The eggs can survive drying out, harmless critters, near the bottom of the food chain.

Pretty much any of those type of knife fish are best suited to their own tank simply because they don't compete well with other fish. Maybe a pleco or catfish of some sort, but not active tankmates. ...

Figure 8's are brackish water fish, won't do well long-term in fresh water. Pea puffers are the best bet, you could actually keep a group in a 75. Not sure how they'd mix with the endler's, but...
