I reported the subject post as disrespectful. When I post questions to this forum, I pretty much know what the consensus will be. Then I do what I want to do. Pretty much looking for agreement.

The reason i keep asking is bc im several different forums and i ask the same questions to get a consensus. I was told the jewel would work on the other forum.

"Aggressive" tetras and barbs under 8" are no match for aggressive cichlids. Pick aggressive cichlids or barbs.
Loaches are iffy with cichlids, and probably a bad idea IMO.
Most of the profiles have suggested tankmates.

Oh, hell yes. I've tried providing some choices as have others. At this point, being an experienced aquarist, you need to pull the trigger. Follow your gut/knowledge or go with the advice offered.

Ok so from the advice from this thread this should work?
10-tiger barbs
1-firemouth
1-cutteri(male)
10-angelicus,zebra, or yoyo loaches would work?

That sounds pretty good. The weakest link I see are the loaches. Perhaps cut out the loaches?
