Joe, I wouldn't get the black skirts if I were you. They can nip. They already have IME. You'll end up having your diamonds, angelfish and bleeding hearts with shredded fins.

are you going on 1'' to the gallon? don't, this will not work unless you are only getting fish under 2''. for a 12'' oscar needs about 10x the amount of space 10 guppies/tetras. corys NEAD to be in large groups of about 6 so I would add 3 more. Also tetras in the wild are found in groups of thousands so get a few species of tetras and get about 10 of each.

I know that fish die, I have had 2 deaths (one angel and one BN) but we call our self hobbyists. We have to take care of our fish for we took them for the wild, now its our duty to clean/feed/care for them. and if keeping them in groups keeps them happy and healthy then keep them in groups, if they want to be solitary then do not get another fish. See what I am trying to say?

We're risking closing this thread again. The opinions keep contradicting each other.
And again, may I remind you to respect each other's views even if one may disagree. One slight disrespect of views and you know what it is.
While I don't see anything wrong with your views yet, I'm reminding you of this.
