I do not understand you. You know the Acara attains 8 inches and will eat anything smaller, and you had it eat your existing fish, yet you buy more of them. Do you enjoy watching fish suffer? The stress on these small characins from having a predator with them is immense. Even if the Acara does not physically attack them, it is sending out chemical signals as a predator and the other fish can read it.
Aside from that, a 50g is not suitable for a fish that attains 8 inches.
I'm sorry to be blunt, but this is simply not responsible fishkeeping.
