If you want to kill your jardini, that would be a good way to do it. For starters, there isn't enough room in that isolation trap for a jardini to swim properly, which would cause him stress and health issues.
Then you have the idea of what happens if the fish does survive that trap... you have already aggressive ciclids who will quickly claim any territory not being protected. Once that jardini comes out of that trap he becomes an intruder. As aggressive as those other fish are, it wouldn't surprise me if one of them came from beneath to attack the jardini, and either causing damage or scaring it bad enough to hit the cover when it tries to jump out. Either way you look at it, you still end up with the same end result... a dead jardini and a lot of money spent.
There have been many answers to this post, all saying the same thing. I guess I'm wondering how much more its going to take to convince you that you have a mess waiting to happen in that tank? It really would be a shame to see any of those fish die for no reason.
