My local fish store owner who i am friend with said he can get to 2" jaguars cichlids in for me, i told him id have to buy a tank for them first and he said he'll get them for me when im ready, i looked at a tank today he is seelling with hood,stand,filter, heater, gravel, and light that is 400 gallons could i keep my two oscars in it with the 2 jags if not i will not buy the jags and just keep the oscars in it

It is largely dependant on the jags in question and the setup. Some jags might be to aggressive while others (most in my experience) would fit nicely into that setup.

it should however be said that most people seems to think that jags are more aggressive than any of mine ever been.

and allow me to say. 400 gallon. NICE!

How much are they charging for a 400 gal. I looked and could not find anything reasonable. Hope it's a great deal for you. I am pretty jealous.

yeah its gunna cost for the whole set up about $1000 - $1500 so im not sure if ill be able to afford it im thinking of just getting a 200 gal and keeping the oscars in it with a couple of my other fish and keeping the community fish in the 50 gal, then my new 1 inch barra (3 of them) in my 20 gal as it takes year for them to grow

BTW Full3R. Could you add a couple of spaces in your sig, When you write it without spaces it prevents line breaking and stretching the screen so that one have to scroll sideways to read your entire posts.

I was thinking when i do get the 400 gal that i could put, a full grown ghost, my barra, 2 oscars, 2 acaras, 2 convicts and maybe some additional fish in it is that to many fish, and if not how many more could i add and what types, all my fish are very gentle, even the oscar who lives with two 2 inch convicts and doesnt even try to eat them or anything

Regarding the fish: I think that would be a lot of fish when all of them are fully grown. How big does the barras grow?

they grow to a meter + but very slowly in 3 years it will still be around 40cm by then i plan to put him either in a pond or give him to a local barramundi farm for breeding purposes (and by him i mean her coz they change sex at around 50cm)
