African Butterfly Fish and Leopard bush fish
I have a African Butterfly fish and a leopard bush and i would like to transfer them in to my 30 gallon mixed tank but i dont know if they will eat all of my fish. i already am considering moving my danios, rosy barbs, killifish, and siamses algae eater out of the tank to a 15 gallon i was wondering if my clown loach, hillstream loaches, apistogramma veijitas, hoplo, and keyhole cichlid will be okay with the African Butterfly fish and Leopard bush fish?
I know thats alot of fish in a 30 gallon. i routinely do water changes and test the water weekly and have a 70 aquaclear so over filtration. i have had only one killi die on me in 8 months.
Sorry, if this is a weird post im new to the forum

That tank is way, way, way, WAY overstocked -- don't add any more!! Routine water changes and filtration do nothing for the fact that that is FAR too many fish for that sized tank, god FORBID the 15 gallon! They have hardly any room! Also some of those fish are territorial or aggressive (such as the cichlids) and the clown loaches can get to a foot long. A lot of those fish are not compatible at all. You need to seriously, seriously rethink your stocking and do some RESEARCH.

The key hole cichlid is not aggresive at all. the appistos are also not aggressive. the clown loach is a juvenille and will be moved to the 75 when it has been cycled. Can you please tell me which fish are not compatible because i have had the tank going for 8 months and not had problems like you seem to be afraid of. I dont mean to be rude im sorry it looks that way, Im just wondering what you suggest i could have in the tank?
