I just got a 29 gallon aquarium and was wondering if I could fit a solo electric blue Jack Dempsey in it since they have smaller bodies than a normal JD.

No, I would say a 40B minimum for them.

Do you have an idea for a fish that would fit then? Would appreciate the advice.

just do it. I would. perhaps you will upgrade, perhaps not. even so, if you interact with it everyday; if it has good hiding spots and it has a clear view of the room, it should be fine behaviorally, you might even hand feed it (like I do with mine). you will need to closely monitor your water quality.

Sure. As he grows, you can consider getting a larger tank later.
