Kribs love nibbling at plants, I don't know if they would be a good mix. Not to sure. But talking from experience kribs destroy plants.

No, because your danio has long fins. Kribs are nippy.

Pelvicachromis pulcher can get TERRITORIAL during spawning but overall do extremely well in a community setting IME. Maybe get a few more danios and maybe a school of smaller characins or rasboras. Also I have never kept my kribs with plants but I have been keepig some rarer sp of african riverine adwarfs (nanochromis parilus and congochromis sabinae) and neither bothers my plants.

I feel bad for the Zebra Danio all alone, they do much better in groups.
