live bearer tang tank

hey guys, just had a wacky idea... I just got some kohaku sword tails in and the are stunning... probably my favorite domestic livebearer... and they are probably coming from the shop to my house tonight... I was thinking about adding a small group of gold occelatus. (shell dwelling... stay really small) anyone ever try something like this before?

yes, I know it seems kinda weird...

any info would be really appreciated.

It may or may not just depends on if you're willing to dish out the money for the swordtails and then maybe watch them get killed. Cichlids are unpredictable, some of them are really calm and others...not so much. I've never had any shellies, but the ones I have observed in other tanks seem to stay near the bottom most of the time, while the swordtails will stay closer to the top/middle mostly. just depends on if you feel like taking the risk. Hopefully when you put the two together you will have a separate tank ready to go for one group just in case.
