Without knowing any of their sizes, seems to me you could give that lot a go. Although there may come a day when you could have to split them up.

If i may make one educated suggestion, leave out the Bumblebee cat's. They're a nocturnal, carnivourous species and are quite beligerent. Once they get to and pass 6", they'll really throw their wieght around after light's out. Patroling every inch of the tank, they're not afraid of much and will spook most cichlids off their little patch of turf. Thus disturbing their sleep and inturn causing unnessercary stress.

Anyway, that's just my experience with the two i've kept in the past. One of which got to 8" and became extremely brave, so much so he'd begin patrolling the tank as soon as i flicked the light on in expectation of food.

Are you referring to THESE?

I have decided to go a different route anyway, but I was under the impression that these stay smaller than their Asian counterparts.
