So how's this:

8 Tiger Barbs
5 BA Tetras
1 Firemouth

She's planning on plants and driftwood, perhaps creating a cave out of driftwood for the firemouth. Does that sound okay?

Depends on the planting.

Firemouths are diggers but not as obsessed with excavating as some cichlids.
Java frerns & anubias on wood are usually OK.

So far I believe she's planning on java fern, anacharis (egeria densa), crypts and vals. I do have a new trick I'm attempting in a planted mbuna setup (crazy, I know!) where I'm threading rooted plants through some eggcrate and she could attempt the same if she goes the Firemouth route.

Thanks for all the help/advice!
