Hey all. I just moved a 75 into my room and finished setting it up last night. I was wondering if, with the current stock, I could throw a Jack Dempsey in there. My friend owns the current stock, but is letting me keep the aquarium until he can set his 125 up at his place. He's got a red pike, another pike sp, a banded leporinus (I believe that's what he said), a raphael cat and a synodontis hybrid. The terrain is planted, substrate being a mixture of eco complete, tan and black sand, and black gravel. Lots of DW and rocks. I would absolutely love to have a Jack Dempsey.
Might could get away with it until the Dempsey reaches five or six inches,then I believe he will re-arrange the substrtae to his liking.
I used to keep large south american cichlid's and only plant's in pot's survived.
