It won't last.Sorry to be negative but the barbs are virtually defenceless against the territorial cichlids.Sooner or later they will be toast.

Agreed, like I said before I tried it and try ended up being appetizers. They didn't last the night. Sooner or later and I'm betting sooner, just like garfy stated.... there gonna be toast....

I have a 56 gallon tank with a gourami, 3 zebra danios, 3 tiger barbs, 1 jewel and a yellow lab. They've been together for almost a year now and I've had no deaths. The jewel and lab pick on eachother sometimes but for the most part leave the other fish alone.
