can i keep guppies with dannios?

Like the title says i am wondering if i can add some fancy male guppies + some females in the intention to try and breed to my existing tank that currently has 10 dannios ( about half and half leopard and zebras) i have a 36"x12"x18" tank with 6 live plants 3 sections of Pvc pipe and 2 mid sized pieces of bog wood.

would the dannio's nip?

using this chart -> http://www.liveaquaria.com/general/f...lity_chart.cfm
says they are compatible but the LFS guy said they wern't and there is conflicting information all over the net, so some input from you guys would be great

so their deaths was completely unrelated? not due to stress caused by the hyper active dannios or anything?

I have Fancy guppies with a small group of White Cloud tetras without any issues. They are sort of like Danios and are very hardy tetras. I don't see why someone would tell you otherwise.

Anybody need any Fancy guppies? I live in San Diego. I'm trying to rehome 2 male Black Moscows + 2 females. I got an ad on craigslist San Diego under Pets section. (PU only) I need to rehome them soon. I have a Pregnate female due anyday now. I would ship them but do not have a heat pack only breather bags and a insulated cube box. PM me if anyone out their is interested in the San Diego area.

the danio I had(was two one died because it was old) was slow and to this day doesn't do much very fast. The female died of stress from the 2 males(newbie mistake) and the males died while I was gone and my mother was taking care of the tank(my other fish survived) this was 2 years ago so it is kindof blurry but ya hope this helps
