You should be fine. Weekly water changes of 30-50% (depending how big your JD is).

150 Gallon - Mostly American Cichlids
135 Gallon - Angelfish Community
75 Gallon - Odd couple (Polleni/Angelfish)
55 Gallon - African tank
20 Gallon Long - QT
10 Gallon - Empty

I would do a sailfin pleco instead but it will not be much maintenance as long as you have heavy filtration and waters changes every month or week if you want.
