Not really a worry unless you set u the tank to really insure highest survival rates. Swords, platties and mollies will eat the babies most of the time. If I didn't seperate the female before she dropped I had one maybe 2 survive every 6 months even in a descently planted tank.

You should pick a biotope(type of environment) before you add more fish. Mollies and tiger barbs practically live on opposite ends of the world. The fish your getting don't all thrive in the same enviornment. Look up some fish that live in the same area like southeast asia, south america etc. its easier to maintain too. It seems like you really want to make it work.
