I would do a water change and redecorate the tank. There may be some initial territitory disputes but that is normal but that is normal when adding new fish. I would leave a few hiding spots so if a fish gets too stressed, it has somewhere to hide.

agree'd with nj...take all the fish out, do a water change, move all the decor around to your preference...then drop them all in at the same time, just so u see no fighting thruout them, this just makes it new territory for all
