a jag is a much bigger fish than a jd, and very aggressive. they would never encounter an angelfish in the wild, they would eat smaller ones i'm sure but not a grown fish. i personally dont have experience with the other cichlids mentioned but i have kept my angelfish with a few different cichlids who can sometimes be aggressive the largest being my oscar. imo i would add a angel(s) to a tank like this and let them grow up, probably a few so there is more than one "target" just in case. i wouldnt however add an angel to a tank where a jd or a green terror had been living solo because they will see the tank as their territory and will prob try to kill it. it always come down to the individual, you might have mellow fish. they might become killers one day, you wont know why.

I put a large Angel in a 50 with a variety of Severum, convicts etc.. last week. I also have 6 large Danio's as Dither's and all is good so far. First sign of trouble and out she goes.
