Pick one: Africans, or central and South Americans. They might get along now, but when they reach maturity, they won't.

First and foremost get rid of the Kenyi's they are the meanest. The Jack Dempsey might be ok, but I wouldn't recommend it. Same thing with the convicts. Those South American fish don't mix with Africans.
Truth be told I have a old JD with Africans, but the JD was my first fish, I expected it to die before any of the Africans matured.
Anyway scratch the Kenyi, JD, and Convicts, and you'll have a good mix.
