Rechecking viable stocking lists for..

Rechecking a viable stocking list for my 75 gallon Severum focused tank. If its multiple types of fish with a / through it then its an either or and open to suggestions as to which. Also open for suggestions to replace any with the exception of a Green Severum as i already have that growing out.

1x Green Severum
1x Jewel Cichlid/Blue Acara (should have a 29 gallon up and running by the time i add one of these so the idea is if the jewel is to aggressive then get the acara and move the jewel to the 29.
1x BN Pleco (not planning on a lot of direct sunlight so there *shouldnt* be to much of an algae problem so one should be fine)
5x Angelicus loach/Yo Yo loach
9+x Congo tetra/Tiger Barb/Buenos Aires Tetra (depending on if i get the last group of fish or not on the number)
6x Boesemani Rainbow

I would scratch the rainbows and let everything else grow out in there. Stock sounds pretty good to me otherwise. Also i would go with the congo tetras.

Well I'm considering another stocking list as well now. Dad found a jag cichlid and loved it... after doing some research and finally talking him out of trying it he found the EBJD. So now im considering something along the lines of:

1x Green Severum
1x JB/EBJD
1-2x BN Pleco
6+x Buenos Aires tetra
and/or
6+x Boesemans Rainbow fish


I don't think the congo's would work with a JD would they? and well I dont think i want to do tiger barbs. as this is a family tank though I'm basically trying to figure out options to do as much damage control as possible while in the fish store.

congo tetras are more likely to work than buenos aires tetras because they are higher bodied and therefore harder for the JD to swallow.

Well then instead of the tetra's would the yo yo or angelicus loach work out? I was worried about the JD being to aggressive for them.
