This might be a stupid question, but I was just wondering how these 2 groups of fish would react if put into the same tank. Its not a large tank, but I was just curious. I have 4 yellow labs, 2 Jewel cichlids, and then I have 2 Tiger oscars in another tank. But I wanted to ask because if I could put them all together and not run the separate tanks it would be awesome. The africans are between 2 inches and 3 inches, and the Oscars are only about 2 inches long.

It would probably wind up being a blood bath with the Oscars, once they begin to grow, taking charge of the tanks territory and elminating the africans.

Also, in terms of ideal water parameters, they just don't match up. The water that rift lake africans need to thrive is far too hard for Oscars.
