Do you guys think they are peaceful enough to be in the same 29 as a flowy finned guppy?

I say yes that is exp I have I had giants with fancy guppies/and the giants are the fastest swimmers among them unfortunately with giant they see commens as food unless the giants are added last if the giants are full grown and old but if giants are young but still not fry they see them as other fish rather than food strange psychology lol but really with this conclusion is the celestial is a perfect tank mate but keep this in mind danios have group mentalitys. Meaning they only act together and try to act like other fish if they see them grouping just to fit in also they should be with 5 danios in all at minimum but will still act in this group manor + these are more gental than giants so good Luck and they should go together based on my exp have fun :)

I'd be careful with celestial pearls, my friend has a group of about 8 or so and they like to kill anything he puts in the tank besides the otocinclus.


Current:
5g: Betta
20g Long: Endlers/Sorority/Cherry Shrimp
20g Long: Espei Tetras/Otos/Pgmy Cories/Assassin Snails

Hmm would they have been bigger or smaller victims or were they incompatible just in-general danios in general are very peaceful also if this is a bit worrying try zebra danios they are about the same size of guppies also try the variant zebras they are even bred to look like giants and other danios

Good and Easy Breeders

I am new to this site but have experience with Guppies,Platies, and Mollies and a few other fish.
The ones i mentioned are live bearers they are Easy to breed and easy to care for babies , i currently have -
3 - Platies
4 - Mollies
7 - Guppy
That have Breed recently.

If i were to choose a species of Live bearer, i would go with Mollies! They are hardy, colorful fish,calm fish
i would get the rite amount 2-3 females to 1 male.
Good Luck
