Tank mates or not?

Parameters are o nitrites 0 nitrates 0 hardness 0 chlorine 7.4 ph and 100 alkalinity
You asked much the same question in a thread started Dec 23, 2008, and the responses you got all said no.
Well I am just wondering bc my friend has all these fish together and they do perfectly fine and The petstore said they are all fine together too!
Aquarists have a responsibility to care for their fish, and I always research any fish I don't know and would never consider one that I suspected might be disruptive. Years ago I went through that, my fish got ick solely from the stress of having a shoal of rather small fish that simply hounded them continually. I had to get rid of the offenders, and things settled down again. No reason to treat our fish like that when we can avoid it.
i agree with byron, those fish aren't gonna be all that great together
I looked up every single one of these fish on more than one sight and I dont see any real problem as why they wouldnt be good together besides the hatchet fish they could be eatin but as far as it looks and as much as i read I think they would all be fine together. I have also called petco, petmarts, and a couple other stores were I live and they all said it should be fine. I realize the needle fish, leaf fish, and black ghost knife fish do need to feed on live foods like guppies, bloodworms, and brine shrimp.
IMHO I don't think this combo of fish should ever be housed together. I'd wouldn't even consider it, for the same reasons that Bryon outlines. I believe that eventually your friend is going to run into problems with this set up.
Try using this Compatibility chart I found an a website. Here it is:
This chart is a good one to save .
