    I don't really know which fish are compatible or not, but I do know that all except for the one say that they are peaceful.
    One other thing I was wondering was: Are these fish okay for beginners?

    Umbrella Cichlid

    If you are a brand new never kept fish before kinda person,go with the guppys.They are easy to care for,inexpensive and will breed for anyone.They are a great choice to whet your appetite with a price and ease that is very easy to handle.

    I don't particularly want to breed, though.

    They give birth to live fish so the "breeding" requirements on you are very minimal - as in clean water and food. Most tankmates will keep the population in check, especially if you don't provide enough hiding for the fry. Free regenerating live food!
    125 - BGK, pictus cats, silver dollars, kissing gouramis, palmas bichir, delhezi bichir
    125 - Red severum, bolivian rams, Turquoise rainbows, irian red rainbows, loaches (angelicus, zebra, kuhli and horseface), plecos (BN, RL and clown), denison barbs, pearl gouramis
    90 - Congo tetras, african knife, elephant nose, spotted ctenopoma, upside down cats

    How do you determine if they are compatible though? Whether they are all peaceful and have about the same water requirements (pH, Temp. etc.) and setup?

    Guppies are compatable no matter as long as you have a male and a female. Males chase the females endlessly so its better to get three females to every male. You can tell because females are drab, and normally fat, while the males are colorful and skinny. As for Ph. and temp, they will adapt to most any Ph, and for temp, keep the tank about 78 F. For setup, you will need a filter rated for the size tank you have, or better, so if it was a 20 gallon tank get a 20 gallon, or 40 gallon rated filter. For the heater I would need to know the tank size. If you want live plants, you will need to use a rich substrate such as Eco-Complete, or for fake plants use normal gravel. Wood often helps to create hiding spots for them. A air pump, and bubbler will be needed to create an airated tank, as well as surface agitation. My guppies like to play in the current so a slight current may be appreciated from the filter. Lastly, you will want to cycle your tank which we have a great thread on in which I will post the link.

    Research.

    If you'd like to start with a beginner's egg layer, try White Cloud Mountain Minnows. WCMMs don't need a tank heater, just food, a good filter, a cycled tank, and clean water.

    Okay, maybe I wasn't clear enough, but I want to know if these fish:
    Blue Acara
    Dwarf Gourami
    Umbrella Cichlid
    Dwarf Cockatoo Cichlid
    Cardinal Tetra
    Indian Glassfish
    Guppy

    Can all be in the same tank (provided it is big enough, of course)?
    And are they all okay for beginners (besides guppies, since I now know that)?


    Edited-
    Just saw your post Taurus.

    Provided you have a very large tank,a big group of dwarf cichlids like that would need plenty of territory.
