He never had any of them die from an attack, thay lived very long.(although the barbs and angel fish nipped some of the tetras fins.)
also, arent Otos agressive? and ive tried rasboras the glass cats killed them :(
I've seen plenty of fish in fish stores at the sizes Lupin described.
The barbs and angel fish nipping the tetras is likely to have been because there wasn't ample space for the tetras to get away, and so were 'in the road' of the barbs and angel fish all the time.
You must remember to take the size of your bioload into account as well, not just the physical size of the fish.
