Red terror

About to set up my new 90 gallon American tank. Thinking of the following set up:

Red terror, red devil, jaguar, JD and flowerhorn. Will this work ?

No sir, this would be the end result in a short time frame. That stock list wouldn't work in a 6ft 180 in my opinion.

I'd pick 1 of the above species (and definitely NOT the flowerhorn) for a 90. Jags are too large. Red Devils and red terrors are too aggressive to be housed win tank mates in a 90. Jd's wouldn't be able to hold their own against such aggressive species. Flowerhorns are awful hybrids that IMHO have no place in the hobby when there are so many beautiful naturally occurring species

Well I don't really want just one specie in one tank. Which two would be the best if I did ?

Unless you get a 6' tank you are limited to one of the aforementioned cichlids. If you just don't want one fish try adding some larger tetras to give the tank more movement and color or start over on your stock list.

The only way that stock would work is if it was during the purge...

You could pick one of them fish (males) 2 if females.

Maybe try the whole stock list but instead of pumping in co2 like people do for plants, you could pump in liquid Valium to mellow everybody out. Only way to pull that list off with no death toll.

I say get a couple Thorichthys meeki and some dithers. Maybe a small bottom feeder.

Someone with 1 aggressive fish over a foot long.

Pretty self explanatory.
