BGK + Tiger Barbs + Bristlenose??

I just got a new 43 gallon tank and i have a small bgk (12cm) in it at the moment. If i add 3 bristlenose plecos and 10 tiger barbs, will i have a problem with aggression from any of the fish?

Thanks if you guys have an answer.

Can you specify what a BGK is? I've never heard of the term. But with the bn plecos and barbs I think those would be fine together.

I don't think I'd keep a black ghost knife fish with tiger barbs, and the it's going to need a much bigger tank. Bristlenose plecos poop a lot, so be prepared to have a lot of filtration and vacuuming if you get three.

Ah black ghost knife is BGK? I wouldn't recommend that at all, they get absolutely massive
