How would electric yellows go with, Oscar, Red devil, Bala shark, silver dollars, clown loach, suckermouth catfish.

Or as another option, convicts and tiger barbs.

Hey Crackatinny,
Not a good mix.
They would all eventually become Oscar food, plus the water chemistry for Electric yellows require high PH and lake salts.

Generally, Electric Yellows should only be with other Lake Malawi cichlids, and then you still have to be careful.

And the electric yellows we have had have been some of the mellowest of cichlids, the list you gave includes some more aggressive ones, I would hate to see those beautiful fish torn up by them.

As said they need the proepr Lake Malawi conditions, so they cannot be in with SA/CA cichlids.
