It's actually that exact stocking list just without the swordtails and 2 leaf fish. Haha I wanted to switch everyone over to a bigger tank. Plus a snail. Everyone is doing very well together. It's been this setup for about 3 months now.The leaf fish will be upgraded here anyway in the near future as well. That's why I was surprised by some of the responses!

We cannot always explain why some fish might not be as obvious in their behaviours or reactions as others in the same species. All animals, even humans, are like this. What we do know is that certain factors can cause aggression to be intensified more often than not. Responsibility means researching the species, and providing what it is known to require and avoiding what may cause stress. This approach is more likely to result in healthy, "happy" fish, and that means a more successful community aquarium.
Here's another parallel. Smoking causes cancer, not in everyone, but the risk is high that if you smoke, you may well eventually contract cancer of some sort. Common sense tells us that if we avoid smoking, we remove the probable eventuality.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
