WOW!!!! That's a BIG Pleco!!!! Could I put anything in the tank with Rocky?
Plecos are safe. 70 gallon right? The problem is he is bigger now and the whole tank is his territory. If you have some hiding spots you could try maybe 2 or 3 convicts. Silver dollars might be ok. The problem as you know is that JDs dont tolerate a whole lot of ruckus and they tend to eat their new tankmates lol.

Hi NavyChief20 . Hope you had a good weekend. Do you think Rocky would get along with a female JD?

Hey Dawn!

Rocky is a big boy so you might want to let her grow up a bit before introducing them. When you do he might hide a bit. Jacks are funny like that. Should be okay but make sure she is good sized before introducing them. Haephestus and Diana were raised separately and then placed together at about 6 months. Now NOTHING is safe in their tank. Lol

Thanks Brian. IM going to have to find a female that is close to Rockys size. I don't have a grow out tank. When I got the 72 I sold the 55.

Not Cories cause he will make friends with them but they wont want to play the game he wants to play lol. I have had marble plecos in with JDs. They ignore them. Pictus Cats might be ok, i cant remember their temp range though.

JDs are really personable. Not quite as out going as Oscars but they have a certain kind of ornery machismo thats really entertaining
