Thread: 2 jaguars help

  1. Default 2 jaguars help

    0 Not allowed!
    i have 1 that is about 2 inches and another that is about 5 inches, i put both together in my new tank and well the little one started attacking and being a straight up bully. the bigger one just tried to run away.

    how can i get them to live together? i do have someone who will take one but id really like to keep both. and also keep my tank stocked.

    atm i have a pleco and 1 of the jaguars in the tank.

    What size of tank are you housing them in? Jags are mean fish and really do need large tanks.
    My therapist says I need a bigger tank . . . . .

    There's the issue right there then. Two jags in a 37G won't work, even if they are just small. Unfortunately their temperment and rapid growth means you won't be able to keep them for long in tanks of those dimensions. Personally I'd say get them to your friends tank asap
    My therapist says I need a bigger tank . . . . .

    You and your friend need to do a bit of research before getting fish. Males grow to 16" and females to 12". 37 gallon is not enough room for even one of these fish.

    +1 you should research teh size but also the temperament. Especially with jaguars.
    Coastie-to-be... hopefully.

    You can't make aggressive cichlids get along. They have to be divided.

    I would tell your friend that unless he can get a 200 gallon tank by next spring, he should not take either of them.
    But it's good you are at least getting rid of one of them now. Good job.
