tank inhabitant issues??

Are there any problems with my tank inhabitant compatibility?? I have noticed the firemouth in my 50 locking lips with my jd. They are all grow outs by the way

What size tank are they going to be going in?

I know myself and others have pointed out issues in regards to some of your other threads and comments. This is the first you've mentioned them being grow out tanks, which if true is a step in the right direction.

It seems they're trying to establish dominance. That's to be expected in a tank of aggressive fish. Sometimes the weaker fish just need to stay out of the dominant fish's way. Sometimes the dominant fish won't be satisfied until it has killed the weaker fish. This is something you need watch.

The jd 3 inches and the firemouth is 2. My larger fish are going into the 125 gal once they hit 8 inches and my Africans are going into the 50 Once it is empty.
