A pair of jacks won't really live with anything, they will most likely kill them. It is also not a good idea to mix rift lake cichlids with other types of fish.

dont ever mix lakes. i tried my auratus with my peacocks and instantly the auratus had a war going so he had to be separated. each species should be with members of their own lakes

Auratus and peacocks are both from Lake Malawi. There are different types in each lake, these are what also need to be separated.
