Does silver dollars and yellow labs get along???

I have a 100 gl tank with five SD I was wondering if I get one male yellow lab and maybe three or four females would it be ok.I also have six lemon and nine penguin tetras,four corys,and one bristlenose.I plan on getting a small tank for my daghters room and put the all the tetras in that tank.Would the SD be OK with the yellow labs??

These fish will not do well put together. They come from two completly different areas, Silver Dollars from South America, while Electric Yellow Cichlids come from Africa. They require two completly different types of water, the SD needing soft acidic water below 7.0 ph. While Electric Yellow Cichilids need hard water and a basic ph above 8.0. You can find out more about the needs of these fish in the tropical fish profiles, can be found at the top of the page second tab from the left. Also you can see the fish profile by clicking on the shaded name.
