This is my fist JD and he is about 3'' long. At what size do they reach maturity and get aggressive? Mine is very passive and gets picked on my a female HRP.

Right around now. All the fins look good so it should not be a problem. The jd will quickly out grow the hrp. Your community fish will be the first to go.

Thanks. So he should be a pretty mellow JD? The HRP is chasing more then anything. The have jawed locked a few times, but no damage.

Looks good.

They will probably pair up and breed.

Not all JD get aggressive. He may very well stay passive.

72g for now. They aren't going to stay in this tank in the long term and plan on keeping my larger CA's in a 180g. I want to get a male HRP and breed this female in a 25g.
