Yes, but with a caution. Have a read of the profiles of these two species--click the shaded links for each. You will note some concerns there, esp with Nannostomus eques being combined with more rambunctious fish, and the Nannostomus beckfordi are certainly that. I have both species, they are in different tanks; I would not combined them.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

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]
