The barbs are so hyperactive that attacks from the cichlids might be taken in stride; the cichlids are so aggressive that they MIGHT take nips from the barbs as a sort of sport and not get too stressed. I would,however, reccommend extreme vigilance- if the cichlids get too stressed by the overactive barbs, they will kill them, or if the barbs get in too many nips on the cichlids they become susceptable to fungus and disease.
Very interesting setup you have! Please keep us posted on how it works out.
when you say interesting what do you mean? ok so here is what has happend barbs where out all day yesterday i look up the yellow labs and where voted top three least aggressive of the cichlids. i have added three female atleast the guy at my lfs said they are female. also my fiance had to have these red platy. lfs said they will stay to them self and be fine and at most when i had the fish they will be attacked and give my cichlids and tiger barbs bonding time
so say and watched them all day all is going well perfect couldnt believe it. not its not time turned out the lights all is good. No walked by the tank and cichlids are going nuts up and down the side of the tank all other fish were fine. checked my water all is 0 but my ammonia 20 percent water change 0 ammonia. turn the light back off labs still going nut up and down. turn the light on one platy missing. finally turned the light off and will let you know whats up in the morning.
