Kribs - all male can work but it is hit and miss sometimes. Sometimes they will get along fine other times constantly fight.
You would need a well planted tank for most of the fish on your list, the kribs will prefer rocks and plenty of caves.
If your LFS (local fish store) would be able to take the kribs back if they didnt work. Then I would say give it a go, you have a nice sized tank so by providing the plant cover and rocks it would allow the fish their own territories.
I would add a piece of driftwood and perhaps also in place of the Farowella, consider 3 Bristlenose Plecos as bottom feeders.
My tanks been on for almost a year, so it's not new. The only reason It's not done is because I don't have barely get to go the places I want to get things done. My tank isn't that important to my mom. It's a tank. She does take me to the store ,but not as much as need be. I tried this weekend, but once things didn't work. I have four Harqluins in it now ( was ten) but I'm starting over. I also have a few plants and a small piece of driftwood with java fern. And yes, once it's done it will be well planted with stones, caves, etc. Instead of all males would one work? Because I don't won't to spend money on them and then have to return them. I'm a teen and afford to waste money.
