Hi all
I have a juvenile green terror with a juvenile red jewel.
both of them are doing fine for the time being no agression, they often hang together.
I read that those species have compatibility issues and severe aggressions.
Should I separate them before it is too late or they will do just fine ?

I have Green Terror in with 5 other fish.... She (I hope) IS the boss but seems to not pick on the other that bad. The only other one that won't take her shit is my Osacr Hammer but they dont really fight just bump fortime to time. She seems to hang back and just defend her hide for the most part. My buddy has an Oscar and Terror that have been best freinds since day one..... I'm sure they'll be just fine.

always nice to meet another GT owner. mine just layed egg's! :lol:
I have had a jewel, it was vicious, but a GT is more then capable of sticking up for itself. It really depend's on their size and the tank size.

I am once again tempted to do it.
I knoz i they have different requirements but my green terrors are used now to alkaline water and doing fine.
The problem I alreadu have a breeding pair of green terror and I found a breeding pair of jewels.
I know I shouldn't, logically putting them together is looking for trouble, both couples are basically same size. Any chances it might work ? I wanna avoid the Multi Tank syndrome, I already have three...

I wouldn't, I had a pair of breeding jewels, and they were fiercely territorial, I mean these little guys would run oscars 10x their size off their nest.
