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.When I go fishing I just throw sharp rocks in the water and wait for the dead fish to float to the top...

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.
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
Dear naps, sorry I hated you so much when I was a child... Love me
