Awesome thanks and just to absolutely make sure before I start making the plan set in stone.

They will eat guppies? What other fish could I breed to feed them? Neon tetras?

I have an empty 29 gallon that I'm gonna use to breed the fish.

I'd just do guppies. You'll need a growout tank too. Also, crayfish would be nice, or convicts(separate tanks).

Honestly i wouldnt do 2 jack dempseys in a 55. I got a female jack and it almost killed my oscar. If u want something cool and aggresive do a pike cichlid, sengal bichir, some sort of catfish or a black ghost knife

Okay. I'll just do guppies. I have a few smaller tanks for grow out tanks do I need to worry about inbreeding?

As for the aggressive fish I wanna do 2 jack Dempseys or 1 tiger Oscar. Which would you guys prefer?

i know you want jd's or an oscar,but i strongly suggest you look into leopard ctenopoma(as others have suggested)and smaller species of bichirs(senegalus springs to mind, common name being dinosaur bichir)

My dad used to keep 2 JD's and 2 Oscars in the same tank, I believe it was a 30. But he never let them get over 6 inches.........then he went over sea's for 1991 desert storm and one of his buddies had their girlfriend feed the fish for the 7 or 8 months they were gone. But she over fed them, WAY over fed them and when they finally got back the fish were HUGE! and were donated to a pet shortly there after.

Could I get a leopard ctenopoma and still feed it guppies?

Can someone please give me a list?
Say the species name and how many I could put in the 55.
The rules are it must be able to live in a 55 for it's entire life and must be able to eat guppies as a treat.

Format it like this:
Species name, #allowed

Thank you very much for anyone who can do this for me.
-Joe
