It won't work. Africans - that is rift lake, fish with a high agression, high pH and West Africans - not much is known, so better to take no risk
Americans - South america is soft and low pH water, central america is harder - but their agression is such they will not understand each other, and therefore, such combinations will not work
Besides, the tank is too smaal for cobinations of more than 2 species
peacock (Aulonocara sp.), Demasoni (Pseudotropheus demasoni) you will need a lot of them, and therefore a larer tank, more than 4 feel length
Firemouth (Thorichthys meeki), possible. It is a central American species, other CA species: Cryptoheros - any species and Archocentrus all species. Look on this site for more information. Howeve,r as said, 1 species, and only 1 pair
Ram not sure what variety , possible, they are South american
Green terror (Aequidens rivulatus). South American, but they grow far too big - 8 inches, and are very agressive
