2 juvi dovii/jag? crosses
7" GT
7" JD
8" synspilum
6" dwarf pike
3-4 3" salvinis
1 convict pair
6" black belt

this should work right? all the fish have been established together at one time or another....i want to get rid of my 75 gallon and my 135 gallon because they take up to much room , so im keeping my 29 gallon for a grow out tank for my smallest fish and later for my gymneo tank.....

That would be great to have a tank that size. :drooling:

One thing that might be a problem is having three jags in the same tank. This would especially be a problem is you end up with two, or more, males.

I really hope that everything works out for you and once you have it all set up maybe you could post pics. Good luck.

That dwarf pike would be in trouble, in general they are shy fish that need dithers to come out and feel comfortable. Compressiceps would be an exception to that, but at a max of 4" would be jag chow. Wallacii are also more outgoing (mine actually beg for food like a full sized pike), and get a touch bigger at 6" but still I doubt mine would hold up against convicts, let alone sals or a jag.

With that size, I deffinately go for a full sized pike ... marm's, cinctas, lents ... something that won't get pushed around by anyone but usually doesn't start things. Though with those big boys (lents to 14", the others to 18") I'd make sure the cons are full sized!!!
