Cherries and these fish?

My stocking plans for my heavily planted 90g include cherries and the following fish. Will the cherries just become shortlived snacks once the fish are introduced?

Cherry Barbs
Lemon tetras
Black skirt tetras
Rummynose tetras
Neon Rainbowfish
Parva Rainbowfish (sunset)

I would think you would loose some, but with it being heavily planted you should have some survive.
I would say no to the rainbows and certainly question the temprament and size of adult black skirts. The rest I would say would leave you a population in a decently planted tank.
Black skirts? eh... I'm not so fond of em. They are pretty aggressive, and may eat the RCS when younger.
