Tank mates for JD

I was wondering what other cichlids could live with a JD in a 75 gallon tank? I really like the salvini and green terror would either one work?

size wise the salvini would work but and its a BIG BUT. If the salvini is anything like the 2 I have had it will eventually tear the JD up. The green terror (most likely really a gold saum) I'm not sure about because of size. some one else will most likely comment on that.

How big does a tank need to be for a salvini to be with other fish or does it just hate other fish

Mine just went psyco in the middle of the night. Add the fact that they have some nasty teeth and not much stands a chance. I have heard some say they have them and are peaceful but not the one's I've had. Absolutely a beautiful fish though

I have my smaller JD with a convict and African. They seem to be doing great together. They play tag alot but nothing out of the ordinary. For the most part you would need to put them in the tank say the same time.

My Salvini got torn apart in my tank sadly. Not sure if it was the jd, but i wouldnt reccomend a convict with the jd... Although it really depends on the specific fish imo. My fish grew from juveniles together, which is why i feel they get along better than normal.

From personal experience I wouldn't doubt it. The two I had in the bigger tank were together about the weeks and seemed fine but didn't work out. It's only a thirty gallon and I plan on getting a much bigger one when I have the space at least a 75 because I know 50 to 55 is recommended. One went nuts after I upgraded his tank. Is there really any way to tell the sex without taking them out of the tank.

What fish would you recommend to go with a JD?

Honestly that will have to come from someone with more experience with them. My bigger JD only had a upside down catfish in there with him and I'm not going to be putting anything else with him.
