No.

You can get about 6 venutus and other malawi haplochromis with the cat no jack.

or a breeding pear of jacks with the cat.

The venustus get 10 in theres no way I can have ten in a 75 g. the bio load alone belongs in a 100 g.

Absolutely not, these fish when grown need a 125g or bigger tank.
Not to mention a JD requires different water parameters than the Venustus and will likely kill the convict.

Venustus easily attain 10".

6 fully grown Venustus would need a 180g tank.

JD are best kept alone as they are very hard to find a mated pair.

So what do you sugest to give a good tank mate and tank carma with my jack

If you want to keep the JD, keep it alone in the tank. No tanks mates as it will see them as a threat and likely kill them.

The convict may work although it depends on the personality of the JD when it reaches adult size if it is not already.
