Default Breeding in a mixed species tank.

Hi All,

I have an unusual mix of fish in my 70gallon tank.
2 Angels, 2 Rainbow sharks, 2 Red fin sharks, 4 Neon tetras, 4 Endler guppies.
I am not sure about the gender of either of them

Still, I am not sure if the tetras and endlers could breed(individually) in this tank. It has been 2 months since the tetras and endlers are there in the tank.
Is it possible that the other bigger fish might have eaten up all the eggs, if any?

Is it possible to breed these species in this tank?

Thanks,
Ninad

first of all...it is not likely that the tetras would breed....it is not likely for the sharks to breed...
even if "ANY" of the fish did breed the eggs or fry would be quickly devoured by the others...

i am afraid that the answer to your last question would have to be no...you could not successfully breed any of those fish withing that grouping...
