my 6 inch jaguar has currently been moved from his original tank to a new 80 gallon tank. im not sure if it is large enough to home another fish of similar size permanantly, if so, do you think it would be ok to put a midas in with him? He can be extremely devilish, hence why i had to move him, he was taking on a green terror and a texas both the same size as him and both at the same time. will this be ok, will the midas keep him in line?

No that tank is a 150, but all these fish were raised together....the butter is now about 17 inches long...the red devil that he's attacking is now about 15.5 inches and the butter and my big dovii are scared to death of him....he's just terribly mean...and he's in a 110 by himself now...what I was implying that an 80 is big enough for a few for sure...my 250 gallon tank has 12 large red devils, a large tetracanthus, a black belt, a female dovii and a large butter...and.....four large fluvals, one large Cascade an undergravel filter and two aquar clear 110's on it.... I do a 50% water change every 10 days...and, believe it or not, the water STILL tests okay at 10 days!!!

Well Jenni, I"ve been raising these beasts for right at 35 years....(maybe before you were born?>>LOL)...I do appreciate your reply...but this has worked great for me for years.....I have enough filtration on these tanks for a small town water supply-reservoir....and even when I do partial water changes the water still tests great. The reason for the overpopulation is that it does stop aggression...and, most of my fish are 2 years old to 9 years old and I can honestly say I haven't lost a single fish from illness, from aggression/fighting or anything other than old age...I have had illness...and moved them to a sick tank till better....I have had fights and have seperated when the situation necessitated....but, overcrowding WORKS when you know what you're doing.....and, since it has been very productive for getting mated pairs, very rewarding financially and since it's been working for this many years, think I'll stick to what's been successful....I do understand your reply, but not many folks have had the experience, successful experience that I've had over the years. Again, thanks for the reply...

I used to keep Red Devil in group but fail. Your experience is very valuable. Thanks for sharing.
