    I have a 75 gallon tank and its cycling. I saw a electric blue dempesy at a store. I heard that they aren't as aggressive as the regular jack dempesys. Any good tank mates with the electric blue Jack dempsey that are from South America, Central America? Im trying too make a south, Central American tank

    Ime they will do fine with most any of the more common central American cichlids such as firemouths and red devils so long as you aren't trying to breed. I'm not sure what exactly will fit in a 75. I've never kept the electric blue, but even the regular jdz are middle of the road aggression wise.

    If you want fewer worries a school of buenas areas tetras, a firemouth, and a pleco would round out the tank. With cichlids you just never can be 100 percent what the temperament will be.

    I've had EBJD for over 2 years with #5 Giant Danios, #1 ABN pleco, #1 Red-tail Shark in a 55 gal.
    I'm looking for 75 or larger, so I can try Electric blue Acara or Angel with ^above stock minus the RTS.
    If I were to try tetra school I'd go with possibly Columbians or Silver Dollars.
    Not sure, but you may be able to have a couple of dwarf cichlids with the EBJD.
    Also blood parrots or Severum or Oscar will work. I would avoid convicts.

    I know giant danios would work but they are Asian. Seems like a 75 would be tight quarters for a school of silver dollars. I thought they get kind of big? But yes they would work otherwise. I wouldn't put any of the south american dwarves with ebjd.

    A 4 line pim catfish will work with the EBJD, just be aware they are nocturnal, and make spook the fish at night with the long barbels.

    If the EBJD is your centerpiece fish, I wouldn't put in another cichlid that could harm it. Also, make sure that the heater is kept no higher than ~ 78F. A less aggressive and smaller species that would do fine are rainbow cichlids (Herotilapia multispinosa). In keeping with the Central American theme, I would add swordtails or mollies for dither fish. JD's come from cenotes in Central America that have harder water with higher ph values than those found in South America.
