What killies have you tried to keep with other fish? You may have seen
that Gary reports success with N. rachovii, so some can make it. If anyone
has had noted failures or noted success, let us know! Thanks! I know
novices like myself come at killies from a community background, and I've
seen this question pop up before, but not seen any exhaustive answer. I'm
sure it'd be a useful thing to have a list for other beginners. Of course,
I'm sure one exists somewhere that I haven't found.
Cyn. whitei (with similar or smaller fishes
A. lineatus (only with nonmeal fishes)
