Are these killies suitable for a community tank of tetras and cory cats? If they are, how many should I get?

What type of corys and tetras?

Read the care section of this http://aquaworld.netfirms.com/Cyprinodontidae/Aplocheilus/Aplocheilus_lineatus.htm

I read that earlier, and I am a little hesitant to get one. I was hoping someone had some first hand experience with these. I have peppered corys and serpae/lemon tetras. All are rather larger than the current killie I am seeing in the LFS.

These fish are also called rainbow panchax. Has anyone kept them before?

I have. I think it is possible if the tetras are full grown(from what I've seen the two species you have a pretty big). But be able to return the killies if it doesn't work out.

I've kept them, they are lovely fish, and very prolific! I think if you want a predatory fish and don't have a large tank, one of these is a pretty good "mini gar" imitation. Hardly a typical killifish!
