Re: Starting a South American tank....Few questions first
Convicts, Texas, Midas (you can't be sure as this is confused with red devils), Firemouths and Salvinis are Central American cichlids. Sev would be just the cichlid I'd keep with the green terror provided the green terror tries not to bully it severely. The tank is too small for a group of tinfoil barbs. The other barbs will be eaten in no time.

-Oscar (I know they'll get too big for the tank, but I'm OK with getting a 125 when the time comes.)
I was also considering some cherry, tiger barbs, and tinfoil barbs. These would go in first when the cichlids are small, and if they get eaten as their tankmates grow, so be it.
Thanks for the help!
