any one have a strange combo of fish?

I have in my 75 gal tank:
1:
-severum
-jack dempsy
-fire mouth
-mystery cichlid
Also have:
4 black skirt tetras
About 15 misc corys
2 gold loaches
1 fire eel.
This is going against all aquarium laws but yet it works! I have NO agression in my tank. Anyone else have similar experience?

I have a jack dempsy and some swordtails in my Mbuna tank. The jack will obviously get moved once he grows up a bit, but at the moment he's only 3-4" max and does really well with them.

I think the size of your tank is what is allowing you to break the nature laws. Its big enough they can each have a territory and you have a good mix with the smaller guys as top dwelling and aggressive guys as bottom dwelling.

When they were in the 29 they were tiny babies. But they grew and my tank condition got over crowded. Still no fighting. When I had the chance I upgraded toa 75 acrylic. Still fine, no problems. All are about two years old.

Do you have much exp with angels? I'd love another pair in my tank but if I get another male/female will mine kill them? Mine are about 3 inches (without fins) anout 9inches tall with their fins. I have male and female veil angels. Ones yellow ones black.
They are the most agressive thing in my tank as of now. I really wanna try another pair of angels but I don't know if it'd work out??
