the giant danios can be a bit aggressive and are decent sized fish so they should be alright with barbs and the shark and even the cichlids, just keep an eye on them. i wouldnt gaurantee itll work but it can

Do you know what kind of cichlids you are getting?
I agree with kamazza, giant danios are pretty tough active fish. I think there is a good chance it will work out.
