I will be setting up a new 60 gallon tank soon and wanted to go the semi-aggressive route. Would it be possible/wise to have one or two of the smaller cichlids (dwarfs/rams/electric yellows) as additional tank mates, or would I run into too many problems? I ideally want to have a good mix of top/middle/bottom dwellers. A rainbow shark and shoals of other fish including loaches was in mind.
