Default mixture of guppies, endlers & platies

hi all, i've recently decided to rescape my old tank (2-ft)

this time instead of tetras, i'm keeping a mixture of guppies, endlers and platies (about 10 each, mixture of males and females)

some noob questions:

1. can they live together peacefully? i read that they can, but i sometimes see my endlers chasing the guppies (even though the guppies are larger in size)

2. will they reproduce non-stop? i have a fairly dense planted tank, have spotted a few fries already... i hope they won't end up eaten by the adults

thanks

Do note that guppies may reproduce with endlers forming hybrids, that could be why the endlers may be chasing the guppies to breed. just my 2 cents worth. cheers

As long as there are some plants, the fries will hide themselves well. Don't worry.

thanks for the replies

i'm starting to see tiny fries swimming around already

there are red/orange fries (i assume those are platy fries) and grey ones (should be the fries of guppies or endlers)
