Going back to your initial post; no mention is made of your water parameters, and this will have a bearing on what fish will work. From those in your list, basic medium hard water is suitable for all but the rummynose that will not last in hard basic water. Some other tetra would be better, as there are a few that can manage in basic water. The rummynose tetra is not one of them (most are now the Brilliant Rummynose, Hemigrammus bleheri), nor is the cardinal tetra.
On the other hand, if you have soft slightly acidic water, the livebearers would not do well as they need basic harder water. The Scarlet Badis can manage in acidic to basic.
These fish are in our profiles with info on water preferences, numbers, compatibility, etc. Second tab from the left in the blue bar across the top of the screen, or click on the shaded name in posts.
