Default What to add!?

I currently have 2 jaguar/convict cichlids and a skirt tetra in a 33 . I took them out of my 26 gal cause they were picking on my drawrf gouramis. I was wondering what I could add to my tank!

If you mean to the jaguar cichlid tank you may want to wait until they reach full size before you make the next purchase. The jaguar cichlids I am thinking of generally are housed in aquariums of 125 gallons or more, per pair. If you are talking of true convict cichlids, then they will get about 6" at maturity, but in my experience breeding them they rarely tolerate tank mates in anything smaller than a pretty large tank when they reach sexual maturity.

Dwarf g's to my knowledge can get along decently with most community fish.

I'm not talking about jags or convicts as one this is a hybrid they are about 8 months old and no larger than a skirt tetra

Agreed... That fish will still need a 125g, in my opinion. If I were you, I'd add more skirt tetras since they feel more comfortable with more of their own kind. A majority of tetras are schooling fish.
