I wouldn't put in either of those fish in with the featherfins in particular. The Cyps could be fine with both the pulcher or the temporalis shell.

do you think it would work in a 4 foot 110 gallon with the cyp, the brichardi and temperalis?

That probably will work... some people have had the kitumba pick on ventralis, but I've seen it work a bunch of times.

With the pulcher and temporalis... you want the temporalis paired up first. Shells and rubble for them at one end of the tank.. once they've paired up, larger caves etc. and the opposite end.

With any stock selection there will be an element of risk, but if you don't try it you never know! As long as you have a contingency then go for it. What I would ask is that you update the thread with your experiences so we can all benefit. Good luck.
