Clown Killifish breeding and computability

Hey all I have clown killifish (2 male 3 female) for half year now in a 10 gallon very heavily planted. All parameters are good. they eat many varieties of live food and look extremely happy. I had a group of baby scarlet badis until today because the killifish grabbed all their food and was too active. the poor little badis just hide all the time. I thought the killifish would breed by now. Is it possible that the baby badis eat all the eggs and that's why I didn't see any fry?
Second question is that I am thinking of adding three sparkling gourami. What do you guys think?

Welcome to Fishlore.
It's likely you haven't seen any eggs because of the badis. They are pretty picky eaters from what I hear and won't eat most artificial foods, and have likely been eating the eggs which would appeal to him/her.

I think you can add the sparklers without as my issues, just make sure they get their share of food.

Sorry I can't help on the kilifish bullying the badis. Not really my field.
