 hemichromis  will  be  way  to  aggressive  for  suratensis.   You  might  be  able  to  mix  Jewels  with  other  similar  sized/temperamented  malawi  cichlids  provided  your  tank  is  not  too  small.

 Thanks  for  u  r  inputs  experts,I  like  Jewels  the  most  and  I  have  purchased  them  first  Thumbs Up  .My  FH  started  teasing  them(which  is  also  in  almost  the  same  size  and  almost  killed  2  of  the  Jewels,I  treated  them  with  medicine  and  they  are  ok  now)  so  I  have  moved  them  in  other  tank.
 So  guys  PLZ  tell  me  that  Oscars  can  live  with  Jewels?  if  yes  then  what  should  be  the  size  of  oscars(My  jewels  size2-3  inches).PLZ  suggest.

 I  think  u  meant  to  say  that,oscars  will  grow  faster  than  Jewels?  am  right?
 So  the  bottom  line  is  I  can  add  dwarf  chihclids?  morphs  and  dwarf  are  same?  can  I  add  morphs  also?
 And  whatever  I  add  I  think  the  size  should  be  the  same  as  those  of  Jewels?

 Mixing  african  rift  valley  chiclid  with  other  non  lake  chiclid  is  not  a  good  idea  as  the  water  chemistry  for  lake  chiclids  are  very  diffrent.  they  need  high  ph  7.2  to  8.5  and  hard  water.
 Drawf  chiclid  are  very  shy  u  need  to  put  plants  for  them  while  morph  will  dig  and  eat  the  plants.
 Dont  just  buy  fishes,  first  know  about  before  buying  fish.

 Thats  why  am  asking  the  experts  here!  Smile  ,as  I  know  LFS  will  try  to  give  u  all  the  fishes  which  they  want  to  sell  and  they  will  say  "Hau  bhai  yea  bhi  uskey  saath  rahe  gi!".So  what  shoud  I  get  the  point  here  ,
 1)Jewel  +  Morph  =  OK
 2)Jewel  +  Dwarf  =  OK
 3)Jewel  +  Dwarf  +  Morph  =  Not  OK  ??

 As  Madhu  says,
 if  your  tank  is  big  u  can  go  away  with  morfs  and  your  jewels.
 SO-post  your  tank  size  L?XB?XH?  Thumb Up  
 
 Dwarfs  will  not  survive  with  jewels.  Hence,all  1,2,3  statements  are  answered  NOT-OK.  Smile  
 
 Just  google  "jewel  fish"  and  you  get  lots  of  info  on  them,and  their  tank  mates  too.
 For  now  you  can  add  few  convicts,firemouth,  and  a  pleco  if  you  want  to<thats  strictly  provided  u  have  3ft  of  40gal  tank  atleast.

 My  tank  size  is  36'  x  12'  x  18'.So  I  can  keep  morphs  now  as  my  tank  is  suffecient  as  u  said.
 As  u  said  I  googled  and  found  this  thread  :
 http://www.aquaticcommunity.com/cichlid/jewel.php
 This  thread  says  I  can  keep  different  barb  species  with  Jewel   Shocked  .Can  I  keep  barbs  with  them?
 The  LFS  located  at  Koti,he  said  'Yeah  FH  ke  saat  bhi  rahegi  aur  Oscar  ke  saath  bhi  rahegi'   Chuckle   and  I  kept  with  FH  with  almost  the  same  size  and  tha  FH  almost  killed  2  of  the  4   Shocked  .Immediately  I  saperted  them  and  they  are  ok  now  Smile

 You  can  have  medium  sized  barbs.   Cichlid  aggression  is  for  territory  and  precisely  they  wouldn't  mind  anything  that  is  not  a  possible  "threat"  to  their  territory.   Barbs  being  open  swimmers  can  be  added  with  cichlids  provided  they  dont  fit  into  their  mouth.
 But  either  ways,  if  your  Hemichromis  decide  to  pair  up,  they  will  demand  the  whole  tank.
