Well from all of the information I've gathered and from the stories I've heard from friends, and even an example from this thread, I'm going to stay with the idea that they'll be fine together. The loaches I have are small enough to fit in their mouth yet they ignore them, and they could care less about the puffer. I still do think, and not just with fish, that they will grow up considerate of each other. I'm not saying there will not be no aggression whatsoever, but they will be more kind to each other because they grow up with each other. The post in here was explaining about the 2 Dempseys and the mollies, and how nothing happened. These fish will always be aggressive towards each other, but I don't believe to the extent that you explain. Sure they will want to breed and all, but honestly saying that does not seem a problem with aquarium fish. I know people who have Cichlid tanks, and they have numerous Cichlids, and mostly males, and they respect each other to the point a fish can show respect. They will spar no matter what, and if the fish becomes a problem then it can obviously be fixed. I'm no fish expert, actually not even close, but all of these concepts are just derived from personal experience, and each fish is different, as well is the owner.
