What's you opinion on 150 tank stocked in this manner?

Red Hook Silver Dollar (4-6) â€" Myleus Rubripinnis (to help lower aggression... if that's possible, lol)

Green Terror (1) â€" Aequidens’ sp. “Goldsaumâ€

Do you have this combination together? if not i wouldn't mix.

In my opinion the Jag will kill the jack dempsey and green terror, convict is a bit more
hardy although their lack of size will not help them in the long run with the Jag getting quite large.

green terror & Jack Dempsey although strong and territorial are still quite timid despite what their name may suggest.

I have a very similar setup in my 150. I have a jag, GT, oscar, JD, 2 tinfoil barbs, 4 severums, 2 male black cons, and an n. livingstoni that wouldn't play nice in my malawi tank. I got them all as juvies and figured as they grew up I would separate out at least the severums and possibly sell the jag but so far I have no aggression at all. The jag is currently at 8" and he claimed his little territory behind a rock and besides shooing invaders away from his home is is very peacefull so far but I keep an eye out as they all continue to grow.

Your stock seems somewhat reasonable I would get the Jag last to curb aggression but then again they do eventually get realll large-you might be able to get away with it if your Jag is female-personally I like your list just keep an eye on the Jag.
An alternative to a Jag could be one of the following:
Texas
Cuban
Salvini
Pike-Strigatta
Polleni
or even a smaller Guapote such as a Freddy or Loiselle
