My friend has a young jack dempsey that needs a home. I was planning on getting a larger tank anyways and I wanted some cichlids. Can I keep a jaguar cichlid with a jack dempsey. I am hoping on getting females of each because I hear the girls are smaller. What size tank would work with both of these fish?

these are two highly aggressive cichlids. i would advise against putting them in the same tank. it might work if you can get two very young females and put them in at the same time and you are very lucky. it will probably be fine at first, but keep in mind as they age their temperaments will get more and more aggressive. i wouldn't even attempt it in anything less than a 125 gallon tank, to give each plenty of territory, and as always bigger is better. but in my opinion i wouldn't attempt it, both of these fish are usually kept in a tank by themselves or as a mated pair.People say if you can't say something nice then don't say anything at all... Then they wonder why am I so quiet.
Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.
I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
A moderator on a fish forum should be able to identify an oscar... Don't you think?
