I have just finished cycling my second tank I have a 55 full of lake malawi. My other tank is a hospital tank and now my 40 gallon is ready to go I plan on moving the 40 gallon to 100 gallon in about 3monthe to 6months. I plan on getting a jack Dempsey, a Midas, green terror and a red devil....I will add an oscar or two when the 100 gets it going on........ Will these fish live together. I plan on gettin all to start under 3 inches. One other thing what cats can I put with them?

What are the dimensions that's pretty small for all those fish. U could probably do jack dempsey, midas, and oscar and that's probably pushing it. If its a 6 foot tank then maybe

A 100gal tank is not large enough for all those fish. If either of the midas/RDs are male, there's a very good change it will take over the entire tank all on it's own. For example; I have two male midas, one a 14" adult and one a 10" subadult. Each one lives in their very own 125gal tank by himself.

Well u definitely couldn't do rams and convicts because the cons would just kill every ram because the cons are too aggressive. Rams are more peaceful. I think it would be ok if u put jack dempsey, green terror, and oscar together when it comes to bioload but ur jack dempsey and gt might fight a lot.

Cons are good with jd and Oscar. Just allow for own territories. Don't live feed the Oscar too often. My brother has a breeding pair in a 125 with two large oscars, very large Jack, Texas, parrots, and severum. No nipping. The Largest Oscar is easily 13 inches. Everythings fully grown except the second Oscar maybe only 8 inches.
