Well, hate to be the bearer of bad news, but I think your choices will cause problems.

First off, the new shellies, daffs and julies will have a heyday trying to eat the surviving fry. Next, the daffs can be complete terrors when breeding and are best in species-only tanks. Last, but not least, J. marlieri have been known to kill adult shellies while trying to raid the shells for fry. However, if the marlieri breed and defend a territory before the daffs do, then those 2 species may be able to coexist.

*sigh* :roll: Nah, the WC daffs are gonna kill everything else in the tank. If they were tank raised you may have had a chance. But the shellies would still be toast.

Now, there's an exception to every experience, but I do think you'll find more common experience with this combo not working than otherwise.
