Blue acara and Red/Red zebra

So I just lost my baby oscar right before he moved into his new 75 gallon home and I decided to put my red zebra into his 30 gallon tank along with my pictus. I know the water parameters for the pictus and the zebra are different but I was wondering if I could add a blue acara or maybe two ? I know mixing sc and Africans is usually frowned upon but the zebra is pretty passive and I heard that acaras are as well.

It seemed that he accidently swallowed a rock and couldn't pass it

Suddenly swollen on one side of his body, and he lost appetite and couldn't poop. I tried to get him to eat a few peas and then he wouldn't and then tried an epsom bath after that. It may have also been a swim bladder problem but he didn't seem to have any trouble getting to the bottom of the tank, but he did swim with his head tilted down the last two days (this all happened within 48-60 hours)
