Can anyone tell me, is it possible to put the two of these together? I have a female jaguar in a tank by herself, would it be too dangerous for the other fish?

she's only in a 3 foot tank at the moment, I need to upsize but wasn't sure what the best thing was too do, I've already got my oscar in a 4foot tank with a pleco by himself as well, so I'm running out of room (i have 4 tanks) & somehow I don't think my partner will appreciate me having 5 or 6!

If you don't have the red devil, keep it that way. With possible problems housing what you already have it is best to not get anything else to make things worse.

hi i have two female jags in a 90 gal but even that is considered too small for the two of them once they get a little bigger there is also two plecos in there with them i too am trying to find out what would be suitable tank mates for them . i was told oscars would work but they can be overly aggressive i had one once that went through the side of the tank trying to get at the fish in the next tank over it had to get stitches lol sorry i couldnt be of more help.

You have to be so careful with jags, my girl was removed from my oscar/pleco/synspilum tank because she decided to start attacking everyone. Yet she's such a scardy cat, if I walk up to her tank she hides, if anyone else goes near she freaks out and starts trying to get out of the tank!

A jag and devil are real mean fish which you problaly know.
You can try but honestly i think its just wasting your fish and money.
Why dont you just put another jag in?

dont put another jag in unless you have a lot bigger tank they are space hogs

I was under the impression that jags unless purchased together could also kill off other jags? Is it safe to purchase another to put in, she's been in a tank by herself for about 6months now.

It is hard to say, it is not always one way or the other. Sometimes a female will let a new one in, especially if the tank is rearranged. Other times no matter what you do you can't add anything.

It seems to me it would be a big risk to take. She was aggressive towards my oscar so I don't think I'd want to risk her doing that towards another jag and then having no room for that one.

you could try getting one as close to the same size as your original one but the tank needs to be alot bigger and if you do get a bigger tank put them in the new tank at the same time that way nobody has established territory and they might be less aggressive to each other .

Now here's a weird question, I'm being given 2 five foot x 1 x1 foot tanks, does the jaguar need length in room or more height? Is this size way too small for the jag (or 2 if I got another?)

Since it is only 1'x1' it is too small, even though it is 5' long. They do need length more than height, but that is just not the size and shape they need.
