I think a 55 gal. would be the minimum size I would put one in. They are really beautiful fish, but they get about 7 inches long!

they get much larger then 7 inches, mine started in a 55 gallon and I was going to keep him there, but once he outgrew all the other fish his aggresion twards them got out of hand, he was about 12 inches when I moved him into the 125 with some large oscars and now he knows his place! they are amazingly colorfull though!

Regular Jack Dempseys get to be an average of 10" and should be in a tank no smaller than 75 gallons.

Just to add my bit, what sort of tank mates would a JD prefer - if any? I'm interested in getting one too.
