They'd be fine together, featherfins don't eat plants or bother eels.

After seeing an adult group of Denisons barbs in a planted 125 I really couldn't recommend keeping them in a smaller tank than that, bigger would be better.

Clown and yoyo loaches as well as pictus catfish are all social species. The loaches in particular need to be kept in groups, preferably 5 or more of each.

Not sure about exact species, but definitely 2 peacocks and 1 mbuna. Will need to grow out a bit more to be certain, but the blue banded fish may become a problem.

IMO Ram's are overrated; GBR's need higher temps than most other fish are happy with and aren't particularly hardy. Here's a few pics of a less-known SA cichlid I really like, a pair would be fine in...

Angels will eat neons when they grow out. Unfortunately, Colombian tetras would eat the live plants, so your best hope is cardinal tetras that maybe the angels won't see as food.

As long as you can maintain the water quality the number of fish shouldn't be a problem. However, puffers don't play well with others, I'd move that out before it becomes a problem.

Not quite the same fish, but pretty close overall. An air-driven sponge filter and some live floating plants like hornwort or Najas are helpful for tiny fry. The live plants support quite a lot of...

Assorted cichlids are most often African mbuna, commercially bred/raised in FL ponds like common pleco's. They're mostly the hardiest and generally most aggressive species.

You'll hopefully end up with a pair of ocellatus, but need 5-6 juvies to start with to get an established pair. Same with the transcriptus, as with any cichlid. The transcriptus are colony fish, will...

If salt isn't an option you can simply raise the temp to 85 until the Ich is gone. Likely 4-5 days to be sure it's all off the fish.
