if intended for sale I would seperate, makes it so much easier to get the species you want out if selling only to forums and small scale. technically you probably can as all those fish will handle a ph of 7.8. you will not get optimum growth or colouration without each environment being perfect for each species. if you want to cheat dump them all in the 6 footer, crank up the temprature, current, and feeding. and look forward to your reputation diminishing quite quickly. Quality or quantity? its your call, just remember someone out there is making a lot of money by using these techniques. thats about 30% of the industries issues. My thing is quality above all else! healthy disease free never medicated fish.

Good luck with your decision, and i hope you make the one that improves the industry standard!
