Jewel Fish - Hemichromis is a big group found in the West African Rivers. There are some that are very aggressive while others are not as aggressive. So you would need to narrow it down to exactly which species you are considering for me to accurately answer that question!
But if this is a yes or no question, I would say no, they are going to be way to aggressive. Have you checked out some of the cool Lamprologus from the rivers?? Like werneri or Mocquardi, think one or the other would be a better choice.
