Only one I would watch is the Acara. The green terror may try to breed, or dominate it as they are both Aequidens. Then again it could work in that size tank. Try it out for a while and see how it goes. The cons, or othere could be a bit aggressive for the acara which is also a possibility.

Maybe try some giant danios hoplo cats, or a dwarf plecos in there as well.

Sounds like a nice tank you have planned. :)

I'd say 300w...but there's a formula to figure it outlike, "10 watts for every 10 gallons" or something like that...obviously that's not right...lol

anyone know that formla?

3 watts per gallon, but depending on the situation of your tank probably not even that much. I would go for an ebo 250 watt.
