I'm considering purchasing a wolf fish and was wondering what types of species are compatible. I was thinking along the lines of thick-bodied fish over 6 inches like gouramis, leaf fish, or jack dempseys, and armored catfish like the striped raphael or pleco. Do these types of tankmates sound like a recipe for disaster?

Get the wolf at a smaller size and get the other fish much larger. Be cautious as a jack dempsey and red wolf might be a prob. If it’s geophagus or a severum then it’ll be fine. The gouriami May get nipped on my nice bigger.

So would a fish at least over half its length with a similar temperament be compatible?
Half or same size but not the same temperament. It can lead to aggression once bigger. This is in regard to cichlid and wolf.
