, definitely run into problems. Just a matter of time. Sooner, rather than later. Think of it as the most extreme rules of tag, ever. Tag: To the Death.
Firemouths are pretty cool. Kept by itself they tend to get kinda shy. You should ditch everything but the pleco, firemouth, and barbs. Then go out and buy 4 more.
A lot of times LFS's will buy back fish, or fish from bog box stores, at next to nothing...but every little bit helps when your getting a school of firemouths.
A school of firemouths with some barbs would look pretty cool, IMHO. Barbs will definitly hold their ground against the cichlids. They are wily little devils. That should be a pretty good matchup. May be able to pull off a shark, too, but thats pretty much pushin it for your tank.
Firemouths, barbs, pleco. Solid lineup. If I had to pick a pleco for that lineup, I would say rubber lip. But any should hang.
