Yes.....they need to be kept with larger fish, and ones that can take casre of themselves against the jewel's aggression.

well right now he is in with some yellow labs and red zebras so ill proly have to take em back or move em

well in my 20 gal i have 1 red zebra 1 yellow lab and i think anohter red zebra thats a male becuase dif color and i could move the yellow lab and red zebra into teh new tank with the new chiclids of that species but the new 1s are smaller than them and the red zebra in the 20 gal is kinda big about 1.3 inches maybe more and then in the 2o i would have the blue red zebra and the jewel but i dont kno would that work or no? the red zebra from the 20 gal may be over agressive to the ones in the new tank
thanks for your help

He may well work in there....personally, I would give it a try and just keep an eye on any potential aggression.

Seriously beautiful fish, though...I have a trio that are all of 3¬Ĺ" long and are actually prettier than these:
