    I don't think anything else would go in that tank with 2 JD's. They are a larger and aggressive cichlid and I don't think they will allow any other fish in a 68 gallon with them.
    When I go fishing I just throw sharp rocks in the water and wait for the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
    Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.

    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
    Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
    Dear naps, sorry I hated you so much when I was a child... Love me

    dont put anything else in that tank cuz they are very aggressive and territorial fish and they will kill anything else u put in that tank. and the fish get really big so theres really nothing else i would put in the tank. but have fun with them!!!!!

    a mated pair of JDs don't take kindly to any other fish in a 68g.
