Which pearl danio? Celestial pearls would certainly not work well, but plain ol' pearl danios should be fine.

The apistos aren't breeding, are they? Even if they are not, it is possible that they are at least partially responsible for spooking your rummies, in spite of their usually peaceful behavior.

I commend you for not keeping the danios in the 3 gallon, though I will say that you may want to up their numbers (danios do best in groups of 8+...they're also more interesting that way). As for the...

Agree with all the above...freshwater puffers in general tend to be problematic to keep in a community, and pea puffers and amazon puffers would be the most likely species to work.

Guess I might be wrong then...did you notice one particular gender that was causing the trouble? (I had just assumed this was a 'you did not keep at least 8 of this fish!' kind of deal)

You could easily fit more CPD's in there...in fact, if you don't, the tank might look a tad empty. More scarlet badis might also work, though do make sure you can feed them before purchasing them.

Agree with above...fortunately, a Fundulus killifish like this one is much easier to feed than a pirate perch would be, and yours should accept flakes sooner or later.

The Amazon puffer is freshwater, but puffers in general just don't mix well with other fish...amazons are not nearly as nasty as other freshwater puffers, but they are still probable fin nippers.
