Jaguars are true cichlids in every way. They can be rather aggressive to other fish, so I kept mine in a single species tank.

You should keep at least 4 - 6 together. If you're lucky, you'll have a breeding pair form from this.

They are incredibly easy fish to breed with, and are very good parents. The female will often safeguard the fry in her own mouth, so don't get worried if it looks like she's eating the fry.

Keep them in a larger aquarium with plenty of rocks and hiding places. They like caves, particularly while breeding, so create one using rocks.
