I had a pair of zebra dartfish in my 34 gallon. The tank also has a pair of ocellaris, a Tanaka Pygmy wrasse and a shrimp goby living with a candy pistol shrimp.

The other day, one of the zebra dartfish jumped out and my cats quickly killed it. I could not believe the dartfish fit through the screen net.

I was looking into adding another Zebra dartfish. However, I saw a pair of purple firefish on sale for $35.

I was wondering if I can add these new dartfish with the remaining zebra, or will they fight.

Also, would a scissortail dartfish be a better fit, or should I try to stick with another zebra?

Usually those would be ok. I’m super leery about pairs in tanks though unless it’s cardinals or clowns.
 

Have you accomplished something in reefing that someone else said wouldn't work?
