There ARE no other tips than to get a bigger tank. I can't even tell you to get rid of EVERY fish except one, because the tank you have is much, much too small for any of these fish even on their own. You need to sell them all off/return to the store you bought them, and do some research before restocking as to how to appropriately stock for your tank size. Even your future plan is not really feasible, a 100gal split in half with a devil on one side and a jag on the other? A 100gal tank will be barely above minimum for the devil alone if it's a male, and smaller than I would ever keep a single jag on it's own as an adult.

What is the measurements of the tank they are in?

The part you're missing is that when they grow up, they will EACH need a 100gal tank or bigger. Not split in half. Not shared with others. Each.
