Jack Dempseys and Firemouths are Central American and share similar water parameters to African Cichlids (just on the lower end of the ph/ hardness scale. My local Electric Blue JD breeder breeds his Africans and Central Americans in the same water with great success. Since my earlier messages I haven't had any major aggression in my tank and none between CA and African.

Seeing a tank stocked with mbunas is like watching a cichlid city something is always going on. how do you know what gender they are have you vented them? If you truly have one male and one female get at least one other female because the male very well may kill the female in time.
"responsible fish keeper?... Didn't know there was any other kind"
I am not retarded I just can't spell
