depending on the sizes of the cichlids, they all can live peacefully together. Put the smallest or two smallest cichlids in first. then put the rest in later. Put the pair of jacks and oscar in together at the same time that way none of them are used to the tank yet that way they won't pick on each other, this is only if the pair and oscar are large. All cichlids you mention are compatible, but watch out for that nasty convict, they may be small, but fiesty.

Don't put a pair of jacks cause if they deside to breed they'll kill everything.

Most definately NOT. If you had even one JD along with the oscar, con and GT that would require 190 gallons of water. But you may be able to put in a GT, con and one JD wich is only 115 gallons. Good luck.

Don't put a JD with convict or green terror they will kill it. JD are very aggressive fish and should only be put with MAYBE an Oscar or Red Devils of similiar size. I had a JD kill a large 8" Oscar a few years ago.

This is not true, I have 4 oscars, 2 convicts, 2 green terrors, and two jack dempsey's and two algie eaters in the same tank and they all get along, except for the two jack dempseys, One got bigger than the other one and now everytime the bigger one see's the smaller one he chases it around for a long time, but doesn't mess with any of the other fish, the convicts are way smaller than all the other fish, but they are very aggressive and are left alone, if the oscars come to close the convicts simply stands its ground! This is a 55 gallon tank and they all been in their for over a year! oh and i have alot of hideing places, maybe this helps!
