My buddy has a 300 gallon 8'X30"X2' and wants to stock it with as many jack dempseys as he can. It's his favorite fish and he doesn't have an account on this forum so wanted me to ask the experts how many adults he could house for life in his tank. He is running two FX6s and a 20 gallon wet/dry sump. He has plenty of separate rock formations and decorations. Thank you again, my friend will greatly appreciate it!

I would say 10 long term. But he should definitely buy 15-20 and thin out the pack like Jonathan said.
