seriously-start your own forum. in the wild and in captivity are two completely separate items. here's my example- I have 5 acres of land in north Texas. I have rattlesnakes, black widow spiders, rabbits, red-tail hawks, fire ants, frogs, and thousands of other things on my property. should I be able to mix these species in an aquarium since they live together outside. co-exist is a better word and not sure that word is correct either. congratulations on your experience with a mixed species tank but you are in the minority, the vast minority. I would guarantee that at least 90%, probably more, of mixed species tanks end in failure sooner than later. and nobody in their right mind would try something if they only had a 10% chance of success. there are exceptions to every rule but when even 3 or 4 people say don't mix and then you say it is ok doesn't that still put you in the minority. yes it does.
