Hello! First post...and I'm hoping for a few ideas...

I have a 45g tank w/ 2 convicts (those little guys can make some babies) and one "5 Star General" 5 Jewel Cichlid. (I THINK it's African???) They get along well enough...or at least can keep each other at bay. My question is this...is there ANY fish--cichlid or otherwise, that I can keep with this jewel that is a mid-top level tank dweller? The convicts own the bottom of the tank, but I'd love to get someone else swimming in the upper level.

If not, I understand, he's a little testy...but I had to check.

Thanks in advance!

I would honestly stick with that you have. As the 5 star grows (gets to 6"), he'll most than take over all that extra room.

Good luck with the Jewel. I had one in my 45 gallon tank with my fish and while he didn't bother any of them really, him and my Livingstonii would NOT get along. The Livingstonii would get totally owned every time but he was there first, so the Jewel had to go. I hope it works out well for you though. Good luck!
