Kribs with rummy nose tetras and cories?
I've constantly going over stocking plans on aqadivisor and I thinking about want I REALLY want to keep. I thought of several fish, but finally settled. I want something different and I like the look and behavior of kribs. But aqavisor says that my stocking may not work. See with your own eyes AqAdvisor - Intelligent Freshwater Tropical Fish Aquarium Stocking Calculator and Aquarium Tank/Filter Advisor
I've read the proflies and I don't see why though. The Brilliant Rummy Nose Tetra profile says that it can be kept with dwarf cichlids so whats the problem?
it is not so much that...
It is this...When Kribensis starts to breed, they may become too aggressive to co-exist with Rummynose Tetra.
Warning: When Kribensis starts to breed, they may become too aggressive to co-exist with Panda Cory.
If you are not anting to breed the Kribs then just get a few males to live with the tetras. I find the male kribs are easier going with each other than a group of females, plus the males are more colourful
I can't look at the aq advosor link on my phone for some reason so I don't know what size tank you have . I had a 30 gallon with 3 male kribs that all got along . Just make sure there is enough hiding spots that they can retreat to if they do fight

Farowella Catfish is NOT suitable for a new tank, they need well established tanks with algae growth to be happy.
Kribs - all male can work but it is hit and miss sometimes. Sometimes they will get along fine other times constantly fight.
You would need a well planted tank for most of the fish on your list, the kribs will prefer rocks and plenty of caves.
If your LFS (local fish store) would be able to take the kribs back if they didnt work. Then I would say give it a go, you have a nice sized tank so by providing the plant cover and rocks it would allow the fish their own territories.
I would add a piece of driftwood and perhaps also in place of the Farowella, consider 3 Bristlenose Plecos as bottom feeders.
Kribs like to be kept in pairs so no, I would not recommend keeping just a single fish.
I'll just go with pearl gourami.
