    Nope, not even close. Take your 55 and multiply three times. Take that number and you'll have and adequate size for them. The only problem with keeping 3 JDs in a 165 gallon tank is a territorial issue. There can be only one and they'll surely fight for reign of the tank.

    Nope, just 1 full grown J.D. in a 55 gallon.

    For 3, a 100 gallon, minimum.

    How many other fish? 50-55 gallons is a minimum for them. If you have a lot of other fish in the tank I suggest more of a 75 gallon. But with few or little tank members they should be fine if you have adequate filtration.

    No, not even close. 2 is even pushing it for a 55. I'd say a bare minimum for even 1 Jack is a 40 breeder or a 55.

    a million. in the event that they are each and each of an identical intercourse, you do not have adequate territory to maintain them from battling. 2. a million jack dempsey demands 40g for a whole existence. 3. in case you get a pair, the 0.33 jack dempsey would be in issue whether it fairly is a male.

    1 JD needs 40g to itself. A 55g will not be enough territory when they reach 1 year old.
