Hello

We would need to know the size of the tank before me and other members can comment on compatibility........Some of the fish in your list get rather large and are very territorial..........and the tetras might end up being food instead of tankmates..........The knife fish are very good predators and will eat anything they can fit in there mouths.........we need a little more info before i would make suggestions

A lot of those fish are going to get too big

2 Black Ghost Knife- too big ( need 75gal and reach up to 18") will also eat most your fish

1 Albino Rainbow Shark- too big (needs 55gal) can also be aggressive

1 Red Tailed Shark - same a above shark.

1 Silver Shark - don't know exact species? most grow to monstrous sizes

2 Clown Loaches- get huge (need 75gal) can reach over a foot

1 Pakistani Loach- Works!

10 Neon Tetra- Works

5 Corys-works!(pick smaller species 2" max)

2 Bristlenose Catties-works!

5 Rummynose Tetras- Works!

And 5 Swordtails- works!

Without knowing the exact gallons your tank holds its hard to say how many fish can can have. The 6 species that work are all compatiable with each other. However with the numbers you specified I'm thinking you are either going to be heavily stocked or overstocked. I would scale back the numbers and not get some species.

.... I'm probably drunk.

This is how I lurk

I agree with mikaila....you could keep the pakistani loach, tetras, the corys, rummynose tetras, as well as the swordtails.

the other loach, knife fish, and sharks will out grow your tank quickly. 3ft? so it's like a 40 gallon? my 55 is 4ft long I know that, so maybe it's a 40G

I'd stick with the stocking listed by mikailia and 2nd think the sharks and other loach.

Thats around 50 gallons, which is a lot more than I was thinking. I think the above numbers that you listed would be fine in that tank.
