I have a jaguar cichlid with a Flowerhorn and Mayan for 6 months.They begin as little 1.5' fries. It seems the FH outgrew the others considerably, and is now 6.5' whereas the rest are only 4.5'.I feel they need to be separated as they are always hiding away from the FH aggression in their own holes that I provided. Should I move them away and as such, what tankmates should be introduced?

I had a juvenile jaguar about 2-2 1/2 inch in a tank of about 145 liter with an Oscar, green terror, an ornate bichir, convict, panda parrot, 4 silver dollars and a pleco. I know I am going to land myself in trouble later when they grow up. Now the Oscar is dominant but no fighting had erupted so far except when the convict/ panda parrot couple is spawning. This is one of my six 145 liter tanks. All tanks are fully occupied and each has its own problem. Blame it on my over-enthusiasm in collecting cichlids.

I am located in central Pennsylvania and have a 265 gallon fresh water aquarium. The primary residents are a large red shoulder severum , assorted cats, and a pair of large tin foil barbs. If you have fish that have outgrown your current tank, please feel free to contact me about rehoming them.

the size mentioned is wrong. i had a breeding pair of jags. my male was 24'+ and my female was 18'+. very aggressive fish, especially when breeding. the male managed to bite my cats tail. the cat never ate fish again lol

    First thing to do is check you water conditions.  If you don't have a test kit, a local pet shop will normally test it.  How is the fish breathing?

    He's relaxing :)

    If he's eating and you don't see anything on him to indicate an illness, he's probably just resting.

    It might be cold. Mine did that in the winter when the heater couldn't keep up. Once they warmed up they went back to their usual behaviour*.

I have a Jaguar (not sure if it's male or female) that I've had for about months. He/she is about 8' long. As of yesterday, he's been laying on the bottom in a little pit he dug out next to a rock. I dont see any signs of sickness or anything. He still has spunk when it's time to eat or someone swims by. Any ideas on what he/she could be doing?

I have a pair of Jaguar Cichlids that I got six month apart about a year ago.  Just recently they starting spawning.  They laid their eggs about 4 days ago.  Today I noticed all the eggs are gone.  Is there another process after they lay the eggs?  Im just curious cause its the first time i see actual eggs in the tank.  Other cichlids have been produced in the tank but had never seen actual eggs.
