BGK w/ barbs?

Could a put a school of tiger/green barbs in my 90g w/ a Black Ghost knife. Will they bother it even though it will probably be in a ghost house and at the bottom? Other possible inhabitants include:

7 zebra danios
5 congo tetras
2 BN plec
10 cardinal tetras
3 female platies

Also could you think of any other fish I could put in. I'm going to put some plants in there too. I currently have in there now:

7 z. danios
5 congos
1 BN
3 cards (5 died)

Gracias por la informacion.

Hola y bienvendos Fishboy.

Generally speaking, any fish which will fit in the BGKs mouth is in danger. They will prey at night while your other fish sleep.

Get at least 7-8 barbs and they'll be too busy bothering each other to bother other fish usually.

Could I add a red tailed shark to my tank now? After a couple weeks I mean. I'm not sure if it would be too aggressive. I don't think I'll be adding barbs BTW.

I think I'll get some angels and gouramis instead.
