Hemichromis guttatus "Jewel" is a West African River fish endemic to The Ivory Coast down through Southern Cameroon not the Rift lakes. It it typically not recommended to mix fish from these two areas.

The other fish you have planned should do well in the 125 and will appreciate the extra space.

oh I see, it sounded too good to be true =) I just read online the jewel could be introduced to an established community tank and wouldn't fight too hard for territory. I thought he/she might be nice, lol, but understand about the different lakes. So, after this next big one can't do another tank? how would u do the JD, jewel, n firemouth in a 75 n 55. jack alone? if so which one? thanks
