Archer fish???

Hello everyone. Iv been doing some research on the care of archer fish. Sadly I have not been able to find all of the information I am looking for. So I would like to hear all of the experiences you all have had with archer fish. Especially whether or not they are compatible with RCS, endlers live-bearers, Cory cats, hatchet fish, and Cardinal tetras. My hope is to have one as a centerpiece fish in a well planted 65g tank with all of the above mentioned species.

They're brackish water fish.. best in a large species only tank.

From what I have read, Archerfish prefer brackish water, do best in groups, need a tank of at least 100 gallons, and should not be kept with smaller fish.

The archers are true brackish water. Marine salt mix to make water.

They can be kept with scats and monos. All these fish need a large tank.
